There are leadership teams for both our Acute Hospital and Community services, who can be contacted at each UHL hospital, or via Prince Philip House. We have a number of clinical leads and specialists in specific fields such as Neurology, Stroke, Voice and Dysfluency, Head and Neck Cancers, and Critical Care, and therapists who work across both acute and community services.

Speech and Language Therapists have specialist expertise in the management of dysphagia and acquired communication difficulties, including where there is altered anatomy, eg tracheostomy and laryngectomy.
