Speech and Language Therapy Service - St Helens


Who we are
Our Speech and Language Therapy Team provides specialist assessment, advice and support for people experiencing communication, swallowing, stammering and voice difficulties.

We work with patients to help manage and minimise the impact these difficulties can have in everyday life.

We visit patients in their own homes and also deliver services from the following clinics within the community:

We also work with service users in the Trust's mental health inpatient wards in St Helens.

Who is our service for?
This service is available for people over the age of 16 who are registered with a St Helens GP or who are in one our inpatient units.

Who do we work in partnership with?
We work with health and social care professionals involved in your care as well as charitable organisations such as the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

How to access our service
Referrals for communication, voice and stammering difficulties can be made using the team referral form and are accepted from any healthcare professional, family member, carer or the patient themselves.
 
Referrals for dysphagia (eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties) should be made using the team referral form and are accepted from GPs, consultants, other health professionals and nursing homes which have been specifically trained by this service. 

What will happen at your first appointment?
One of our speech and language therapists will meet with you and talk to you about your medical and social history, your current difficulties and your expectations of the service. We may need to conduct an assessment if it’s appropriate. 

Where else do we provide the service?
We also provide this service in Knowsley.
