Liz Taylor – Clinical Director & Specialist Neuro Occupational Therapist
Liz is Clinical Director of Munro Therapy Services and a Specialist neurological OT with over 15 years’ experience in the rehabilitation of adults with neurological impairment.
Liz graduated from The University of Salford,Manchester with a BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy in 2001.Initially thinking she wanted to work in Paediatrics, it soon became clear to Liz, whilst working on The Taylor Unit, a Neuro rehab ward in Leigh, that Neuro rehab was actually where her heart (& expertise!) lay. As such, liz has worked in a number of specialist neurological settings including acute neuro-wards, acquired brain injury rehab centres and community settings, including The Walton Centre for Neurology and Neuro Surgery, Salford Royal Hospital, Coppull Brain Injury Team and Highbank Rehabilitation Centre.
Realising that, long term, she would be unable to provide the bespoke and client led service she wanted to, Liz left the NHS and established MTS in 2007 to provide a specialist private neurological OT service to the North West.
Liz strongly believes in Multi Disciplinary Team (MDT) working, regularly liaising and joint working with other professionals, such as speech and language therapists,Physio’s and Brain injury Case Managers. She recognised the unique nature of brain injury OT and strives to provide client centred, bespoke treatments with her clients. As such, Liz has also established Creative Training Solutions, a bespoke training company who specifically provide training to those working with people with acquired brain injury.
Liz has also trained in medicolegal report writing and works closely with solicitors and case managers to provide assessments and reports.
Liz is also a Committee Member for Headway Wigan and Leigh, who provide practical support to people who have experienced brain injury, as well as their families and carers.
In her spare time Liz is a hands on Mum to her young Daughter and tries to fit in regular runs and gym sessions. For relaxation Liz enjoys nothing more than long walks with her Dog, Lola and attending Yoga Classes.
