Fortuna Mobility’s showroom and training Centre is the largest in London and we work closely with many busy healthcare professionals to provide a wide range of specialist products and services. Talking to OTs, Physiotherapists and industry representatives, we are aware that, in spite of being the capital, there are very few ‘events’ and training opportunities for AHPs within London.
Our Centre includes a training suite and it seemed natural to use this to facilitate a new London-based learning programme for Allied Health Professionals - LOTT (London OT Training).
Each LOTT Study Day will include 3 high-quality educational sessions led by an expert in their field. There will also be a wide range of new equipment available to see, try and learn about.
For our launch event we are delighted to welcome two highly respected experts as our speakers, Kate Sheehan and Danielle Holmes.
Contact us to secure your place. We look forward to meeting you at LOTT in April.
