Speech and Language Therapy (Adults)

We aim to deliver a high quality service to adults in Nottinghamshire County with swallowing, voice and other communication problems.

We work with patients, carers, other healthcare professionals and agencies to help people recover their communication skills as much as possible. We also help people to manage their own long term problems.

The service also supports people who are being cared for at the end of their lives.

We see patients at a number of places across Nottinghamshire. We can also see patients in their own homes if they can't travel.

Group therapy is also provided, when appropriate. Our staff work across four areas:

  • stroke
  • long term conditions
  • specialist medicine and dementia
  • voice/head and neck cancer
