Speech and language therapists

Helping you to learn more so you can teach them a thing or two.

We’re good together.

Our Speech & Language Therapists (SLTs) enjoy diverse and rewarding roles as part of a supportive, multi-disciplinary team where every day – and every patient – is different.

Whether working in our Adults’ (Community Therapy team and Specialist Community Neurology teams) or our Children’s division, all Our Speech & Language Therapists often get to know their patients well and are supported to develop their skills and knowledge throughout their career.

In our Adult Community teams, our SLTs see adults with neurological conditions in their own homes. The Speech & Language Therapists working in the Specialist Community Neurology team see people with difficulties they have as a result of their neurological condition. For example, they may have difficulties with producing clear speech or understanding and using language, or they may have problems with swallowing.

In our Children’s teams, SLTs work closely with parents, carers and other professionals such as teachers, early years practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists and doctors.

Children’s SLTs work mainly in Community Health Centres, mainstream and special schools and nurseries, Surestart Children’s Centres and family homes. They help infants and children with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties, assessing what might be going wrong and suggesting changes which will make the process safer and help the child to develop their skills.

If you’re a qualified, registered SLT who is also patient, compassionate and creative with a sense of humour, you’ll enjoy a diverse role, get to know your patients and be well placed to deliver better outcomes for them.
