Amy Speight

Occupational Therapist & Care Expert


BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy, Full Member of Expert Witness Institute (MEWI)


  • Trauma & Orthopaedics
  • Lower Limb Amputation
  • General Medicine & Surgery


I qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2009 and I specialise in adults with physical disabilities. I work as an occupational therapy advanced practitioner for the NHS in the field of amputation. I lead a team of therapy staff within a specialist outpatient setting, in-reaching into acute hospital wards and rehabilitation settings and visiting adults and children, with upper and lower limb difference, in their own homes, at school and at work. 

I am co-chair for the Prosthetic and Amputee Rehabilitation Forum within the National Executive Committee for the Royal College of Occupational Therapy Specialist Section for Trauma and Musculoskeletal Health.

I support my acute hospital colleagues in providing a service covering all medical and surgical wards and regularly see a range of conditions including cancer, dementia, chronic and acute respiratory and cardiology conditions, liver disease, vascular conditions, rheumatology, orthopaedic conditions, trauma, colorectal surgery, gastroenterology, women's health, and diabetes. My previous professional roles have provided me with experience of supporting individuals with acute mental health needs.

In 2018, I began working as an independent occupational therapist, providing specialist rehabilitation following physical injury, running inclusive and accessible therapy groups in local communities, completing social care assessments and advising local authorities on the implementation of care packages for elderly adults with physical disability and dementia.

I have significant experience in assessing and implementing intervention regarding individuals’ activities of daily living, cognitive function, home environment, and educational and social circumstances, in order to maintain or regain independence or access appropriate care, support and equipment.

I accept instructions from both claimant and defendant solicitors and insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
