Speech and Language Therapy

Welcome to Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) service. We hope these pages will provide you with information to help you or your relative/friend.

Speech and Language Therapists provide evidence based services which meet the needs of people experiencing difficulty with speech, language, communication, voice or swallowing. We offer a wide range of specialist in and outpatient treatments from acute care to long term rehabilitation across Leeds General Infirmary, St James and Chapel Allerton Hospitals.

Our friendly and skilled teams are all registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and aim to maximise everyone’s potential to communicate, eat and drink safely and effectively. We work in partnership with service users, families, care homes and a variety of Health and Social Care professionals to help reduce the impact of these often isolating conditions and improve individual’s wellbeing and ability to take part in daily life.
