Welcome Val Sparkes

Val Sparkes

We are very pleased to introduce Val Sparkes; a new Case Manager in the North West area.

Val is a qualified Occupational Therapist and has been since 2004. She began her career with the National Health Service where she held a rotational post for three years.  Her posts included Orthopaedics and Surgery, Neurological Rehabilitation, Medical Specialities, Community Hospital and Paediatrics.  Val completed her final rotational post as Case Manager for the Conditions Management Programme.  During her rotational posts, Val benefited from working with a varied caseload including Acquired Brain Injury, Muscular Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury and Amputation.

Working in both Paediatrics and Neurological Rehabilitation has encouraged Val to develop her knowledge of specific conditions, particularly with regard to longer-term conditions.  Working in these areas has enabled Val to develop effective working alliances with clients, their families and carers.

Val’s experience of working within the field of Mental Health has been valuable, particularly within Neurological Rehabilitation.  Complex cases have required skilled and specialised occupational therapy interventions encompassing both physical and cognitive assessments and interventions.  This has not only involved managing the biopsychosocial impact of the condition with the client, but has managed the considerable effect that illness and function has upon families and carers.

    Wow, how fantastic to see Val in this role. She was an amazing OT for my daughter and exceeded all our expectations.
