The Occupational Therapy team for the Specialist Neuro Rehabilitation is based within the Specialist Spinal and Neuro Rehabilitation Centre at University Hospital Llandough in Penarth. We work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to treat people following a brain injury.

We set goals and work together through the rehabilitation plan towards achieving the highest level of independence and ability possible.

Referrals are made via the consultants: Dr Andrea Lowman and Dr Ellie Marsh.
