Speech and language therapy

Welcome to the UHBW adult speech and language therapy service.

We provide treatment and support for adults with communication and swallowing difficulties. We are based across several sites including the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI), St Michael's Hospital (STMH), and Weston General Hospital (WGH). We provide both inpatient and outpatient services across sites.

All our teams work closely with and provide training for the wider multidisciplinary team.  We run bi-weekly videofluoroscopy clinics at the BRI and a weekly videofluoroscopy clinic at WGH. A fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) service is available on Bristol sites and is currently being developed at WGH.
