Background Information 
Professional profile:

Kate has over 20 years experience as an Occupational Therapist, experience ranging from, Trauma and Orthopaedics, Burns and Plastic, Hand Trauma, Neurology and Rheumatology. She has worked both for the private sector and the NHS, as well as providing an Independent Occupational Therapy Service on a consultancy basis providing hand rehabilitation reports for Insurance companies, providing treatment for complex wrist and hand injuries.  

Kate has splinting experience with adults and children, skills including splinting both static and dynamic splinting.  Kate has run basic anatomy of the hand and  splinting courses on a private basis. Kate has also run joint protection groups in the past for the NHS.

Kate's aim as an Occupational therapist is to consider the "whole" person and base the treatment accordingly, working closely with Surgeons and Physiotherapists.

Personal profile:

I love my work as an Occupational Therapist, the challenge and complexities, but also understanding the smallest of things can make a dramatic difference to a persons life. A gadget or a splint can enable someone to play the guitar or ease the pain of day to day activities.

I try to play tennis and pretend I am fit by attending the gym.

As well as my interest in hands and brains ( after all they work together!) ,  I help with a local charity to promote understanding of Autism.

My biggest challenge of course is bringing up two teenage children.
