East Sussex Speech and Language Therapy Service for Adults provides assessment, diagnosis and treatment to both inpatients and outpatients with acquired disorders of communication and swallowing.
Inpatients are generally seen on the wards whilst community patients are seen in clinic bases or their own homes. Patients are treated either individually or in small groups and there is emphasis on helping people function more effectively within their environment. The number of appointments you have will vary depending on your need – some people will have a one-off assessment while others may have a block of treatment.
All qualified speech and language therapists have completed a recognised degree course and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
