Specialist speech and language therapists

The specialist speech and language therapists are involved in the rehabilitation of speech, voice and swallowing following treatment for head and neck cancer. Patients may be seen prior to treatment to provide information and support around anticipated changes to speech and swallow function following surgery. 

Rehabilitation continues on the ward, on an out patient basis and as part of the weekly multi-disciplinary head and neck clinic. They run a weekly videofluoroscopy swallowing clinic and specialist clinics for laryngectomy and voice.They work closely with the clinical nurse specialists and dietician to support patients during and after their radiotherapy treatment.
