- Loss of Service
I qualified as an Occupational therapist in 1995, and since then I have gained a significant breadth and depth of experience in my specialist field of neurology (especially traumatic brain injury) and hand therapy. I am the owner of Total Neuro rehab, which provides independent neurological occupational therapy. I am able to assess individuals following neurological Illness or injury and provide a client goal focused occupational rehabilitation programme. I work with clients in a community setting, which includes both home and work environments.
In addition, I also undertake medico-legal work for Somek and 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.
