Who do we work with?

Speech and Language Therapists work with adults with communication problems and/or eating and swallowing problems associated with:

  • stroke
  • head injury
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • dementia
  • cancer of the head, neck and throat (including laryngectomy)

We often work in multidisciplinary teams and work closely with families, carers and others involved with the individual.

There are some therapists in the Department who are able to provide therapy through the medium of Welsh.
