Barbara shows her support for Worsley and Eccles South Speech and Language Therapists in Westminster

Barbara recently joined speech and language therapists from across the country at the ‘Giving Voice’ event in Parliament. 

The event was organised by The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists to raise awareness of how speech and language therapy helps millions of people every year.

Barbara met Sheila Church at the event to discuss the speech and language therapy services for people in Worsley and Eccles South and concerns about how cuts and NHS changes might affect those services.

Barbara said:

“Speech and language therapists play an important role ranging from work with children with autism to work with older people recovering from stroke. Speech and language therapy is transforming people's lives in Eccles South and Worsley on a daily basis.

I was glad to attend the recent meeting of speech and language therapists in Parliament and to meet Sheila Church. Sheila highlighted the valuable work that speech and language therapists do in Salford and the challenges they now face.   Sheila told me she is concerned about how her work and that of other speech therapists will be commissioned in future.

I hope that Government Ministers agree with me that speech therapists do a vital job and I hope that their work will continue to be supported in Salford.”
