Hayley has seventeen years of clinical experience as an Occupational Therapist and fifteen years within Hand Therapy and Upper Limb Services. She currently maintains a clinical role both as a treating therapist and also as a Consultant Hand Therapist which allows me to remain up to date and skilled in all areas of diagnosis and treatment. She currently assesses and treats patients with upper limb injury and conditions and who have complex needs and have frequently failed with previous therapy (both occupational therapy and physiotherapy). She has gained advanced clinical and diagnostic skills as part of her current clinical role and as part of a Master’s degree in Advanced Practice. Her previous role as an Extended Scope Practitioner has enabled her to develop extended skills in the interpretation of diagnostic imagery and injection therapy.
