Engagement in occupation to support participation in life!


Department Profile


What is Occupational Therapy?

Being able to engage in the daily tasks of life - those tasks that are mundane and those that are of the utmost importance - is the critical focus of Occupational Therapy. The daily patterns of our lives make us who we are - to do is to be.

Occupational Therapy facilitates people to do the day-to-day activities that are important and meaningful to their health and well-being through engaging in valued occupations.



The Inpatient department is located on the ground floor of the Victoria complex between Dermatology/ Ground Floor Vic ward.

The Outpatient / Hand therapy unit is located further down the corridor near the Victoria Entrance.
