COT SS - Independent Practice

We support occupational therapists working in the independent sector


COT SS - Independent Practice represents occupational therapists who are self-employed or work for employers outside of the NHS and local authority sector - including private occupational therapy practices, housing associations, equipment manufacturers and retailers, private medical facilities and insurance companies.

  • A unique opportunity to market your practice to potential customers with a listing in our popular online directory of independent occupational therapists
  • Discounts or a range of business services, including indemnity insurance.
  • Information, including our Start Up Pack for new members, our bi-monthly e-newsletter, briefing papers, email updates, our telephone helpline and our email enquiry service.
  • Opportunities to keep up-to date with developments in the sector and meet other independent occupational therapists by attending our annual conference and/or joining one of our regional networks.
  • Ongoing training and professional development opportunities to help you constantly improve the quality of the services you provide to your clients.

We also have a Medico-legal Forum, which provides support and advice for members working as independent witnesses in the legal system.
