Welcome to Speech and Language Therapy

The Speech and Language Therapy Service supports people aged 16 and over who have a speech, language, communication, voice and/or swallowing problem. Our aim is to ensure our service users, as well as their family and carers, are able to live and work to their maximum ability.

We provide:

  • Assessment
  • 1:1 and group therapy
  • Practical advice
  • Education and self-management advice for patients, carers and family
  • Communication aids or onward referral  for specialist equipment when clinically required.

 

Conditions we deal with include:

  • Dementia
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Long-term conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis.

 

We also offer a service for dysfluency (stammering) and voice feminization.
