Matthew Bourne Occupational Therapist

Occuaptional Therapist
Essex, Greater London, Kent, London, Thurrock, South East areas

Since qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 2000 I have worked in a variety of specialist areas including Mental Health, both inpatient and community settings.  During this time I co-ran a memory clinic. I’ve worked in Social Services managing a Major Adaptations team and worked in the private sector for builders and charities. Most recently I have been the Head of OT within an acute hospital in South London.

For the last 6 years I have specialised in moving and handling, plus housing adaptations. I have worked with patients with multiple conditions, both adult and paediatric.  Dealing with complex family and social histories. I have gained experience working with multiple agencies including, rehabilitation teams, social services, housing associations, Housing departments, wheelchair services, reablement teams, care management, sensory impairment teams and private builders/surveyors/architects. I have attended courses around access design enhancing my work experience.  I have helped plan new build properties and design refurbishments of sheltered and similar accommodations. I have acted as a housing/disability advisor to Croydon Council in regard to refurbishing sheltered accommodation and advised their access officer on numerous new build schemes.  I have assessed and designed for hundreds of adaptations covering every conceivable design and type of disability. I am able to think outside the box and design an adaptation to suit the unique needs of an individual.

I am currently involved with a private sector company advising them on OT, housing and disability issues as they set themselves up. I also act as a consultant to another company offering management of the entire DFG process on behalf of a local authority.  My diverse experience enables me to delve into a huge bank of knowledge. I am therefore able to deal with complex and challenging scenario’s always finding a satisfactory solution.

Matthew is a private Occupational Therapist covering London, South East and Kent areas.
