The Hand Clinic at Marston Road is part of Oxford Brookes University. It is the first hand clinic in the country based within a university.

The Clinic is led by a registered and experienced occupational therapist (OT) and former Brookes University OT lecturer who specialises in hand therapy (Pam Anderson), together with other lecturers of the OT programme (all HCPC registered therapists), and is also a recognised provider for some insurance companies.

The Clinic is also a learning environment and, with your permission, OT and physiotherapy students will be offered opportunities to observe the Clinic consultation and treatment sessions.

The Clinic provides a full range of hand treatment across the lifespan (children, adults and older persons).
