Speech and language therapy

What we do

Our team works with people who have communication and/or swallowing difficulties, both as inpatients and outpatients. Our housebound patients are referred to the Community Speech and Language Therapy Service. We also work with the hospital stroke team, X-ray department, doctors and dieticians.

We offer a moving X-ray process (videofluoroscopy) that allows us to see what is happening in a person’s mouth and throat while they are swallowing. It helps us see if any food or drink is entering their lungs and means we can manage their eating and drinking difficulties safely. We also assist with breathing problems caused by conditions such as lung disease or where patients have more than one medical condition.

We can help with communication impairments, such as due to stroke, with voice disorders such as vocal strain or vocal cord problems, and we also provide stammering services for speech problems.

Our team uses the Solution Focused Brief Therapy ethos as part of our work.
