The clinic is a teaching and research clinic for speech and language therapy students. Students are involved in all aspects of the day to day running of the clinic, including telephone triage, assessment, providing therapy and running training sessions. Highly experienced speech and language therapists will be providing supervision as well as undertaking clinical work.
The clinic is free and supports clients aged 18 and over with acquired voice disorders, stroke, head injuries, and Parkinson’s Disease. When accepted by us, we will: assess your speech and language; work with you to find what you want to be able to do; offer therapy depending on your needs; and – where appropriate – liaise with other healthcare professionals.
We accept referrals from local SLTs, voluntary groups, doctors, family members and self-referrals. Please click on the relevant link below to complete the referral form and consent form. You will need to complete both to be accepted by our service. We will always ask you for consent every time we see you and be open about asking to record sessions for teaching purposes.
Once we have received your completed referral we will contact you. Please note we do not have access to NHS records so we need a detailed history of previous SLT intervention, medical history and current presenting condition. You can post these to us or email these once we have made contact with you.
