Hiyah,

As a ms suffer I am interested in the occupational therapy service you provide?

Regards
Hugh

Dear Hugh

Thank you for your enquiry.

Oxleas have two Neurorehabilitation Teams, one for people who live in Greenwich and have a Greenwich GP, and one for people who live in Bexley and have a Bexley GP.

Both teams have Occupational Therapists and provide a broadly similar service. We provide short episodes of neurological rehabilitation, which can be in your home, or any place best suited to achieving your goals (eg leisure centre, work place, community).

All rehabilitation is aimed at helping you to self- manage your neurological condition, and maximise your independence, productivity and satisfaction. We accept referrals from GPs, Consultant Neurologists, MS Specialist Nurses, or any healthcare professional.

As you asked specifically about Occupational Therapy (OT) for people with MS (RR and PP), their aims are to enable you to manage your day to day tasks and activities in a way that contributes to your physical, social and emotional well-being. They work with you to look at altering the way a task is performed, or adapting the physical environment, teaching you a new skill, or working with you to regain old ones.

I will email you with additional information and my contact details should you have further questions.

Kind regards

Alec Sutton
Neurorehabilitation Manager - Bexley and Greenwich
