Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
Our occupational therapists (OT) work with children who have difficulties with the practical and functional skills necessary for their everyday life and to enable the child to be as physically and functionally independent as possible.
We work as part of a multi-disciplinary team providing assessments in the home, nursery and school along with strategies and advice to help your child be as independent as possible. Where appropriate we provide treatment sessions, assessments for equipment provision, and upper limb splints. We also support the child's transition into nursery, school and adult services.
