Speech and Language Therapy Services provide evidence-based care that responds to the needs of children, young people and adults who experience speech, language and communication or eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.

The Speech and Language Therapist works in partnership with these patients, and their families, other agencies and professionals to reduce the impact of these difficulties on the patient’s well-being and ability to participate in daily life.

The team work to assess, diagnose, design and deliver care packages to children, young people and adults with speech, language and communication difficulties and to maximise their potential to communicate and ensure the safety, health and well-being of those clients with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.
