Craig Harington


Driver Trained Occupational Therapist

I become an Occupational Therapist in 2001 while working in the UK. My clinical experience includes spinal cord rehabilitation, rheumatology, burns & plastics. I also gained valuable medical experience while working Veterans’ Affairs NZ on a panel, determining whether a veteran’s condition was attributable or aggravated by their military service.

Alice Wakefield

Transport Team Leader

Driver Trained Occupational Therapist

8 years ago I began my journey as an O.T. I started in Adult Mental Health, and dabbled in Pediatric care.  One day a friend urged me to sit in on a Medical Fitness to Drive assessment and I was hooked! I work with clients to help them understand just how complex driving really is and enjoy breaking down the assessment components to help my clients realize the impact of these factors, on the way they drive.
