Presenter from The OT Service:  Adam Ferry  

Adam graduated as an occupational therapist in 2007 and worked in the acute hospital setting until 2018.  In that time Adam spent 5 years working in A&E and a MAU as part of an admission avoidance team, then managed acute and rehabilitation services for 4 years before leaving to work full-time in the private sector as a Director of The OT Service.

Adam coordinates many local authority and NHS contracts, as well as holding his own caseload.  He has developed a national reputation for delivering high-quality CPD and training, in areas such as falls, accessible design, moving and handling, and many others, all underpinned with a reflection on occupational therapy and the value of occupation.

Adam is passionate about occupational therapy and uses CPD sessions as a forum to reflect on and challenge practice with the aim of maximising the impact of the profession on the community.
