Moving, handling and bathing specialists Prism Medical UK have today announced they are to offer Occupational Therapy services to their Local Authority and independent care home clients. In response to increasing levels of customer requests, Wakefield based Prism have entered into a strategic partnership with Able 2 – a specialist Occupational Therapy service provider.
The partnership will provide increased flexibility and responsiveness to the ever increasing demands stipulated by both Authorities and care homes. It is envisaged the service will assist clients with short and long term OT planning requirements, to help them achieve a nil waiting list. The service provides complete case management from initial assessment to final inspection and is delivered by Able 2’s team of experienced Occupational Therapists.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to develop a partnership with Able 2 with their long standing reputation for helping Authorities and other organisations within the care sector achieve their targets. With the addition of a full OT provision, we now more than ever provide a fully rounded service ensuring that both our care sector customers and end users receive a premium quality, yet cost effective solution.”
