At Manchester Occupational Therapy Services we provide an adult service to assess and treat dysfunction to promote independence.  We work holistically across a range of conditions including brain injuries, executive dysfunction, cerebral palsy, stroke, spinal injuries and orthopaedic injuries.

Medico-Legal

Manchester Occupational Therapy Services have a vast array of experience in working with clients through the medico-legal process. We work closely with case managers, solicitors, barristers, expert witnesses, MDTs and financial deputies. We understand that this is a stressful time for the client and therefore work with the client with a degree of empathy but endeavour to ensure the client gets the most out of this intense rehabilitation process.
