Public File: 

Our Specialist Section was established in the early 1990s to address the emerging issues of intervention with people with HIV, cancer, and palliative care needs


We respond to the changing needs of this caseload as many conditions such as cancer, HIV, neurological, renal and heart disease become more chronic.


Being a BAOT Regional Committee member helps you keep in touch with what is going on nationally and locally in occupational therapy. It's a great networking opportunity through which you can meet other OTs from around the region working in a diverse range of roles.
