The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Children's Speech and Language Therapy

team outside

Welcome to Children’s Speech and Language Therapy service.  We provide an acute specialist service to support feeding and communication for inpatients at Leeds Children's Hospitals.

We aim to give everybody the opportunity to communicate, eat and drink to the best of their ability.

We work in partnership with children and their families, other and professionals to reduce the impact of their medical needs on their wellbeing and ability to participate in daily life. We often liaise with local community speech and language therapy teams so that support can be followed up in the community once the children are discharged from Leeds Children's Hospital.

Please note: If you are looking for outpatient and community speech and language therapy support or assessment, please search for 'Children's community SLT' in your local area.
