WM ADASS launched its Principal Occupational Therapists Network in 2018. The Network includes adult social care Principal Occupational Therapists or equivalent in our 14 councils along with representation from key partners.
The virtual Network meets bi-monthly to support the West Midlands Improvement Programme providing information, improvement and best practice sharing for activists across the region. It also:
- provides leadership for POT in local authorities, raising and maintaining a high profile for the profession and what it contributes to social care
- participates in transforming social care delivery through a wider recognition of the potential of OT
- shares best practice, learning and constructive challenge to support the best outcomes for our communities.
The Network is sponsored by Pete Fahy, Director of Adult Services, Coventry City Council, co-chaired by Andrea Gronow at Dudley Council and Emma Banks, Shropshire Council, and managed by Lynn Bowers , Workforce Lead, WM ADASS.
