Speech and Language Therapy
Our Speech and Language Therapists are committed to ensuring we provide a caring and compassionate service to adults and children experiencing difficulty with:
- swallowing, eating and drinking
We work directly with service users and carers to diagnose, assess and provide personalised life-improving interventions, support and care that is evidence-based using our specialist expertise.
We work in partnership with a variety of Health and Social Care organisations and professionals (including doctors, nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychologists and social workers) to help reduce the impact of these conditions upon a person's ability to take part in their daily life.
We offer a wide range of specialist in-patient and outpatient services, from acute care to long term rehabilitation. These services are across Leeds General Infirmary, St James' University Hospital and Chapel Allerton Hospital.
These services cover:
Adults • Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) • Head and Neck Cancer • Neuro-oncology (cancer) • Acute Medicine • Neurology • Neurosurgery • Major Trauma • Critical Care • Respiratory • Stroke Services • Acute Medicine • Older Adult Medicine • Leeds Motor Neurone Disease Care Centre • Neurorehabilitation
Childrens • Cleft Lip and Palate Team • Leeds Children's Hospital • Neonatal • Cardiac • Surgical • Neurology • Respiratory • Voice
We cover the city of Leeds and for some specialties the wider Yorkshire region.
