The Royal College of Nursing has announced that industrial action will take place on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February. We'll contact you if your care or your child's care is affected. Ambulance workers are planning strike action on Friday 10 February. Learn more.

A number of transport strikes are due to take place this February. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Community occupational therapy advice clinics

We are able to discuss your concerns and offer you occupational therapy advice in our virtual advice clinic.

Who can come to the clinic?

You can attend the advice clinic if:

  • you who have previously been discharged from our service, due to not attending appointments
  • you were advised to come by an occupational therapist or another health professional
  • you're concerned about your child’s ability to participate in everyday occupations
  • you're not sure if your child needs to be referred to the occupational therapy service

Health professionals and education staff are also welcome to attend if they wish to discuss a referral.

What can I expect from the clinic?

You will speak with an occupational therapist for around 15-30 minutes.

The therapist will discuss what your concerns are and either give you advice or discuss how your needs may be met.

We can advise whether your child may benefit from a referral to Occupational Therapy and how you can arrange for your school or known health professional to make this referral.

Should I bring my child?

As this is a short session, it will be better for you to attend without your child so that you can discuss your concerns openly.

When is the clinic?

The clinic runs on the second and fourth Thursday of the month, between 9:30 am-12:15.

Please contact our therapy admin team to arrange an appointment during these times. You will be offered a virtual appointment through our secure platform or a telephone appointment, these choices will be discussed with you.

Our therapy admin team can be contacted by phone on 020 3049 8181 or email gst-tr.otadmin1@nhs.net
