Occupational Therapy integration

Examples of Practice

Currently OT services in Perth and Kinross have been provided separately by the NHS and Local Authority.  The NHS provides a service to adults, primarily in hospital and clinical settings which focuses on the rehabilitation of patients.  It employs around 27 full-time equivalent staff.  Perth and Kinross Council’s Community OT service employs around 21 full-time equivalent staff within four locality based teams. It provides a community based service to adults and children which generally focuses on adapting the environment for clients.

The preferred model for integration in P and K is the creation of four locality based teams (linked to the emerging P and K Social Work structure), with and acute hospital based service remaining at Perth Royal Infirmary.   All community based OTs would provide a generic service and have access to hospital based specialisms as required.
