Study Days for Independent Occupational Therapists

Manchester and London

Aimed at those working in the medico-legal field as a treating therapist and those considering working as a medico-legal expert or treating therapist. Perhaps you are unsure which role you would like to pursue? This event will provide an excellent opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and network with fellow independent occupational therapists - to better inform your decision. There will be two interactive sessions presented by Irwin Mitchell:
