"Occupational therapy"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

Angela O. T. at Wishaw General Hospital provided aids to enable me to shower independently and also handrails to allow access in and out of my home. I previously struggled with these things but due to Angela's help I am now able to carry out these things. She also showed me some hand exercises which are helping me to strengthen the muscles in my hands.

She also provided me with other aids to allow me to function more independently.

The service provided was excellent and of a high standard.
