OT'a assess and treat individuals struggling with their daily routines due to mental and physical health conditions.
Since graduating in 2017 I started working in a rotational post, I rotated through four areas before getting a static post in Orthopaedics.
I was able to progress within this area and get a secondment as a band 6.
In 2022 I left the NHS to begin working within the council equipment and adaptation team, aswell as a role as an Independent Medical Assessor for blue badge assessment.
I found out about it through my mum who works as an AHP and also met another OT who really encouraged me to go for it.
Anyone can be in the profession, it needs more people that look like and can represent our communities and people we interact with
The profession is incredibly vast and has a multitude of opportunities.#
Everything. I love working with people and couldn’t imagine doing something different.
