Our Locum of the Month

Monday 7th November 2016

Here at JustOT we like to celebrate the personal achievements of our locums and this month we have the pleasure of recognising Kirsten, a lovely and highly skilled Occupational Therapist from Melbourne, Australia.

Kirsten (pictured on the right), has come over to the UK and not wasted anytime in getting stuck in adapting to life and work in London. She has a great motivated attitude and is extremely hard working within her profession.
