Like mother, like daughter, occupational therapy all the way

In preparation for the College of occupational therapist conference this year me and mum reflected on our past experiences

What year did you first attend the College of Occupational Therapists Conference?

Mary: In 1995, in Edinburgh.  Ashamed to say I did not attend for my first 15 years as a qualified OT. (Follow Mary)

Rachel: It was  2008, I was a band 5, and coincidentally it was the last time the conference took place in Harrogate. I had been qualified for two years. (Follow Rachel)
