Speech and Language Therapy

Speech and language therapists (SLTs) provide life-improving treatment, support and care for people who have difficulties with communication, eating, drinking or swallowing.

Our service provides assessment, diagnosis, treatment and advice to help people reach and maintain their best level of communication and/or swallowing, increase independence, and live to their full potential.

Using specialist skills, our team works directly with people and their families and carers to provide them with tailored support. We also work closely with other health care professionals including doctors, nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists to develop individual treatment programmes.
