Also, Marina informed us that an OT student is now with the team -
“Sam Crockwell is a first year OT student from Worcester University who will be with us 1-2 days/ week until April 2017. She will be sitting in on appointments and groups, if patients are agreeable to this, gradually taking on more responsibility under the team’s supervision.
Having students is a great way of increasing awareness and understanding about CFS/ME, and hopefully will be carried into whichever area of practice they go on to work in the future.”
The current team, from the end of Nov. 2016 is:
Marina Townend - (part time Specialist Occupational Therapist / Team Leader)
Helen Ayres - (part time Clinical Psychologist)
Sara Young - (part time Occupational Therapist)
Kirsti Barnes - (part time Administrator)
