Our team of qualified and experienced speech and language therapists work directly with patients to diagnose, treat and help manage their disorders. We also work alongside their carers and families, ward staff, hospital volunteers, and community-based Speech and Language Therapy partners and healthcare professionals to provide seamless care. As part of this, our therapists also provide ongoing training for healthcare professionals and hospital volunteers to help with communication and safe feeding.
We have a number of highly experienced therapists working in our service who specialise in:
We see both inpatients and outpatients patients at several locations across the county, including Royal Cornwall Hospital (in the Princess Alexandra Wing on the 2nd Floor), Marie Therese House neuro-rehabilitation unit in Hayle, West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance and Cornwall Hospice Care.
All qualified therapy and dietetic staff are required to be registered members of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) who are responsible for regulating us. You can find out more about registration on the HCPC website.
