Who we are
The Occupational Therapy (OT) service provides assessment and treatment of people through the use of specific purposeful activities in order to promote independence and quality of life, particularly in the areas of self-care, work and leisure. Occupational Therapists assess the physical, psychological and social abilities of the individual, identifying strengths and needs. In collaboration with the service user, a structured programme of activity is developed to build the skills needed to live as independent a life as possible. Occupational Therapists are based within most of the East London NHS Foundation Trust teams that provide mental health services in Newham.
