Our very own Kate Sheehan talking to Anna Foster on BBC 5 Live Breakfast about the importance of occupational therapy in the recovery of people living with long-term Covid-19.

The OT Service has been my first port of call for cases that have complex housing requirements for many years. The team are experienced and skilled with a focus on collaboration. As a case manager, there must be a collaborative approach and a willingness to think laterally given the unique projects we are often responsible for on behalf of our clients.
As a case manager working with adults after catastrophic injury, I am always on the lookout for reputable and professional third party providers who are experts in their field. The OT Service are just that.
I have had commissioned the OT Service for several cases and have valued their approach to delivering a consistent and reliable service.
A fascinating seminar, gave me lots to think about. I assumed there would be research to back up the benefits of bathing and pain. Thank you for being so honest about ‘was it OT you were practising in the early days?’.
I really engaging presentation that made me think about my own clinical reasoning and evidence based practice thank you.
