The Hand Therapy Service is run by specialist Occupational Therapists and a Physiotherapist, who support four Consultant Hand Surgeons. We have two therapy sites based at Cardiff Royal Infirmary (Trauma Service) and University Hospital Llandough (Elective Service).
Our Hand Therapy team consists of therapists who have undergone post graduate training including the British Association of Hand Therapists accredited courses and specialise in the treatment of hand conditions and injuries.
Our role is to provide education, fabricate splints and rehabilitate our patients through surgery / injury, to return to work and leisure as well as activities of daily living. The therapy team work alongside surgeons, planning and implementing post-operative care in order to maximise patients’ recovery following surgery. Patients are often discharged early from Consultant clinics into the care of the therapist who will then direct their ongoing treatment.
Should you require a formal assessment, then please make an appointment with your G.P in order to be referred to our team.
