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

College of Occupational Therapists

Mary and Rachel Booth are mother and daughter and they are both occupational therapists.  Mary qualified in 1980 and was made a Fellow of the College of Occupational Therapists in 2014, now mainly retired but working as a specialist advisor to the CQC.   Rachel qualified in 2006. She is currently a Clinical Lead Occupational Therapist in acute and rehab mental health, and is the outgoing chair of the Northern and Yorkshire BAOT regional committee.  They share their conference highlights.

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)
