John Fitzpatrick's profile

John Fitzpatrick

Silver Fern Therapy

John qualified in 2001 in Auckland, New Zealand. He has spent his entire career in the wheelchair industry, in a mix of clinical and sales roles before moving to become a full-time director of Silver Fern Therapy in 2018.

Silver Fern Therapy provides private wheelchair and seating assessments. We have immediate appointments available and pride ourselves in providing a one stop shop - from assessment to equipment handover. We do all the leg work for case managers and clients. We work closely with retailers who we can source equipment from. We will work with case managers and end users throughout the purchasing process and ensure that the equipment purchased is the most appropriate.

We also have a huge amount of experience with home adaptations. Peter Rusin, another OT, provides this service. He has worked in numerous London boroughs and private entities and has a wealth of knowledge in this field.
