Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy empowers people to reach their full potential, achieve their goals, and enjoy life to the full.

Occupational therapy provides practical support to enable people to overcome any barriers that prevent them from doing the activities that matter to them, and helps to increase people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life.

Occupational Therapists work in a variety of health care settings within Trafford General Hospital. Occupational Therapists work in integrated therapy teams working alongside other Allied Health Professionals such as Physiotherapists and Speech and Language Therapists.
