RCOT History

The British Association of Occupational Therapists was formed in 1974 from the Scottish Association of Occupational Therapists (1932) and the Association of Occupational Therapists (1936).  The College of Occupational Therapists was subsequently founded by the British Association of Occupational Therapists. Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal became Patron of the College in 1986, and the College was awarded Royal status in 2017.  As the professional body for occupational therapy, their latest insights and innovations from practice, research and education will be available to delegates throughout the show from their stand K38.

The Occupational Therapy Show, in its sixth year this year, is the UKs largest OT dedicated show. It is a key date in all OT professionals’ diaries and welcomes over 4,700 visitors over two days. Delegates will benefit from completely free access to 80+ hours of CPD, as well as the opportunity to view all the latest innovations from over 270 OT centred suppliers.

Chief Executive of RCOT, Julia Scott says:

“We’re looking forward to opening The Occupational Therapy Show 2018 and meeting fellow professionals to talk about all the latest insights and developments in occupational therapy.”   

Matthew Butler, Managing Director, Healthcare Portfolio, CloserStill Media said:
