    the opportunity to have a FREE profile listing in our online FIND AN OT directory - to market your occupational therapy services
  • Representation
    the opportunity for your member views and needs to be represented to the RCOT in order to support the continued development of member services/products and the independent sector as a whole

As a result of the RCOT CRM and Digital Transformation Projects, membership management (for ALL Specialist Sections) has become centralised and taken over by RCOT. As a result, all applications now need to be made via the new My RCOT portal on the RCOT website (n.b. as before you will need to first be a RCOT member). If you have any questions and/or encounter any problems, please email the RCOT Membership Team ([email protected]).

In addition to the transfer of membership management, the content of our website is to be moved over to the RCOT website. New SS-IP webpages are currently being set up to accommodate this but in the meantime member benefits are still housed on this website. For access, and a profile listing (should you wish), please email the SS-IP Coordinator ([email protected]) with the following information:

  • name
  • BAOT number
  • HCPC number
  • location (city + postcode)
  • email
