Right to Rehab

Right to Rehab

Parliamentary committees should prioritise investigating the provision of timely, high-quality, person-centred rehabilitation in relation to the Scottish Government’s ‘Framework for Supporting People through Recovery and Rehabilitation during the COVID-19 Pandemic’. This should be accessible for everyone who needs it, including but not exclusively those suffering from Long Covid. Occupational therapists should play a key role in this provision of rehabilitation – investment in occupational therapy is an investment in getting people from hospitals into their communities and social groups and regaining their life and work roles thus being able to get on with their real life. Committees should also seek clarity on whether or not rehabilitation for mental and emotional health issues is kept on par with physical health conditions.
