Our speech and language therapists work in hospitals and health centres across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We see people when they are in hospital, as outpatients and in their own homes.

We provide services at:

  • the Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General Hospital and Glenfield Hospital
  • community hospitals
  • some health centres
  • home for some patients
 

If you are referred for a speech and language therapy assessment the therapist will take a history of your communication andor swallowing difficulties and may carry out some assessments to understand the difficulties more fully. You will work together to develop a plan to help with your needs. You may only need a single appointment or may need a course of therapy, but you will discuss this with your speech and language therapist.

How can you access our service?

To access our service you can speak to your GP or consultant who can make a referral.
