Tim Watson

Profile

I am a qualified occupational therapist with 10 years of experience in working in hospital inpatient and community settings.  Initially starting my career in forensic mental health, I started working in brain injury case management in 2011.  I have worked with a broad spectrum of people with cognitive difficulties, as well as severe physical impairments.  I have experience of working with male and female clients, as well as paediatric case management.

I have extensive experience of assessment, treatment programme implementation and report writing for clients with complex conditions and presentations.  I work collaboratively with multi-disciplinary teams to provide client-centred treatment, and have experience of setting up and managing community discharge packages.

I have been an advanced member of the British Association of Brain Injury Case Managers (BABICM) since 2014.  I am currently a director of BABICM, sitting on council in the position of membership secretary.  I am an active member of BABICM’s Professional Practice and Membership Group (PPMG), most recently writing the Code of Conduct for case managers with (Case Management Services UK) CMSUK and (Vocational Rehabilitation Association) VRA.

In 2014 I gained experience in giving evidence at a trial in the High Court in London, and have since delivered training to other clinicians on court room technique.
