South Wales Regional Hand Therapy Group

The South Wales Regional Hand Therapy Group is well established and covers a large geographical area from Fishguard to Chepstow.

It is coordinated by therapists from the three cities of Cardiff, Swansea and Newport. It is an open meeting where Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists from throughout the region are invited to attend and we aim to have three meetings a year. The topics are varied but there is always a clinical focus as well as input from surgeons in the form of instructional sessions.

The meetings are rotated between Cardiff (Llandough Hospital/Cardiff Royal Infirmary), Swansea (Morriston Hospital) and Newport (Royal Gwent).

Contacts: Nick Gape (Cardiff), Laura Ingham (Swansea), and Amanda Lee (Newport)
