Speech and language therapy

What we do

Our team works with people who have communication, swallowing and voice disorders, as inpatients (at both hospital sites) and outpatients (at the Chelsea site).  

We have specialists who help with: 

  • Dysphagia (swallowing disorders)—we use clinical bedside assessment and videofluoroscopy (moving X-ray) to accurately assess and diagnosis swallowing problems
  • Respiratory and tracheostomy management
  • Stroke rehabilitation, and other neurogenic swallowing and communication disorders
  • Care of the elderly
  • Communication and swallowing problems arising from other medical or acute conditions
  • Stammering and voice disorders (Chelsea site outpatients)
