Occupational Therapists work within multidisciplinary teams to provide a range of inpatient and outpatient services across Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and Princess Royal Hospital.
Occupational Therapists are skilled professionals who use person centred principles. We take a holistic approach to patient care, seeking to provide practical support to enable patients to recover from an illness or injury and participate in their daily living and work skills. “Occupation” refers to practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity. This could be essential day-to-day tasks such as self-care, work or leisure.
Occupational Therapists aim to maximise an individual’s independence and facilitate safe and timely discharge from hospital to prevent re-admission by working in partnership with patients, carers, family members, health and social care professionals.
