Occupational therapy services for adults


Occupational therapy from the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

Occupational therapy is used to assess and treat people with physical, emotional or cognitive impairments. Occupational therapists focus on helping these people to improve their ability to carry out the everyday activities that allow them to live independently.

In our busy hospitals, occupational therapists play a part in assessing whether patients are safe to be discharged from hospital or if they require additional support to manage at home, such as patients with multiple sclerosis who might need special equipment to move around.

Occupational therapy for children

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust also has an occupational therapy service for children. Find out more by visiting the paediatric occupational therapy pages.
