    Introduction

    I specialise in the assessment and treatment of clients with orthopaedic conditions ranging from elective orthopaedic surgery to complex trauma injuries including limb amputations, hand injuries and severe burns.

    I have a particular interest in hand rehabilitation and previously worked as a Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist/Extended Scope Practitioner in Hand Rehabilitation, at a regional trauma unit.

    I currently work in private practice as a self-employed Occupational Therapist and I am the clinical director for The Rehab Team, providing nationwide access to occupational therapy and rehabilitation services to private clients, case managers and insurance companies.

    In addition to my clinical practice, I also work as an Expert Witness for Somek & Associates. 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 the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to Expert Witnesses. I have Court Room experience.
