Understanding your needs

Your relationship with us will be managed by an experienced occupational therapist from your very first call to us.

Services

Assessments

Covering all areas of occupational therapy, our comprehensive assessment packages identify areas of difficulty and recommend what can be done to address them. Assessments are typically carried out in clients' own homes, whether in the UK or overseas, although in some circumstances a consulation over Skype can provide us with the information needed to support them.

Treatment

Treatment packages are bespoke to the needs of each client and available immediately after assessment if desired. Sessions are usually delivered in blocks of eight sessions to allow for goal setting, measurement and review. Treatment through The OT Practice is delivered in clients' own homes for as long as is clinically necessary, and at times arranged to suit them.

Equipment

Following an assessment, out OT can recommend equipment to maximise independence and safety. We can arrange for equipment to be transported and installed overseas if required, as well as provide any demonstrations and training necessary for its proper use.

Home modifications

Accidents, illness and ageing often require home modifications to maintain a client's independence and safety. Whether oriented towards using the bathroom, accessing different floors or installing specialist sensory rooms for children, our team is perfectly placed to provide the advice, specifications and support to achieve these.

Carer training

Training can be provided to family or carers in specific treatment methods identified through the assessment. Whoever the audience, our team are used to delivering training to carers in an accessible, easily-understood manner.

Our approach to working with international clients

Having worked with international clients, in the UK and overseas, for many years we have gained a strong appreciation of their needs and have tailor our services to match. There are three core elements we believe are critical to delivering exceptional service to our international clients.

Our client managers

From your initial enquiry to discharge you will have an experienced, office based OT as your point of contact to manage your case and ensure quality, consistency and timeliness. Firstly they will aim to fully understand your needs and recommend how to proceed base on sound clinical knowledge, working with you to select the most appropriate OT in our team to provide care.

Our processes & systems

We manage many cases at any one time and have hundreds of OTs working in the community so ensuring every case runs smoothly requires dependable processes and systems. We have refined our processes and invested in bespoke systems to provide the foundation to The OT Practice operations, always ensuring the experience for our clients is enhanced not encumbered by any processes or systems we use.

Our nationwide team of therapists

We have the largest team of private OT’s in the UK and all passed a strict selection, interview & registration process to ensure we only have the best therapists on our team. Clinical skills and experience are essential, but to become an OT Practice therapist our team members must demonstrate a track record of professionalism and the right attitude to customer service, as well as having an energetic and innovative approach.
