Speech and Language Therapy (Adults)

We aim to deliver a high quality service to adults (aged 18 and over) in Nottinghamshire County with acquired swallowing, speech and other communication problems.

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

Our staff work with people who have a variety of therapy needs due to neurological conditions such as stroke, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, brain injury, dementia or any other condition that causes swallowing and /or communication difficulties.

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

We see patients in a number of places across Nottinghamshire including their own home, when required.

Outpatient clinics take place at: 

  • Mansfield Community Hospital
  • Newark Health Centre
  • Stapleford Care Centre

Our staff provide the Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) services for adult inpatients at:

  • Lings Bar Hospital
  • Kings Mill Hospital
  • Mansfield Community Hospital
  • Newark Hospital
  • Queen’s Medical Centre
  • City Hospital

Our staff also work in specialist multi professional community teams in Bassetlaw, South Nottinghamshire and Mid Nottinghamshire. They also work in specialist inpatient units and with Community Mental Health Teams across Nottinghamshire as part of Mental Health Services for Older People (MHSOP).

Most consultations are 1:1 but group therapy is provided, when appropriate.
