Dear LMI,

Thank you for your positive feedback regarding your recent experience of Occupational Therapy. I will ensure that Joanna receives your post, and is aware of how valued her input was. Recovering from a below knee amputation can be extremely difficult and can make all the little everyday things that we take for granted extremely challenging. I am delighted that Joanna helped you through this difficult experience, and wish you every success in the future.

Best Wishes
