Occupational and Physiotherapy

Therapists and other roles with Aneurin Bevan University Hospital


An Occupational Therapist’s (OT) role is to support those patients that have a disability as a result of illness, ageing or accident. The OT will work with a patient to assess, develop and support a Rehabilitation Programme that will consider all of their needs including, physical, psychological, social and environmental. They will advise on any adaptation required to both work and home environment to assist them with carrying out everyday tasks following their disability.


Physiotherapy roles in primary care assess and treat patients with a Muscular Skeletal (MSK) problem or injury. Access to this service is generally by self-referral or via Care Navigation practice triage. Physiotherapists can assist with falls prevention by providing education and support to those patients at risk of falls. This role is pivotal in reducing pressure on secondary care and can provide preventative measure by empowering patients with minor MSK conditions to mitigate further damage.
