Speech and Language Therapists from two Black Country NHS Trusts will be coming together to highlight their successes at a joint celebration event.
Tomorrow’s session is being attended by Steve Jamieson, Chief Executive Officer of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, and will feature the launch of a new shared vision for Speech and Language Therapy at both Walsall Healthcare and The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trusts (RWT).
This vision has been created as a result of feedback from staff across both Trusts following a joint meeting of both services in the summer.
Elizabeth Wassall, Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) Service Manager for Walsall Healthcare, added: “We welcome the opportunity to shine a light on the quality work taking place in both our services as we continue to share and learn from each other.”
Charlotte Colesby, SLT Services Manager at RWT, said: “Our shared vision places patients at the centre of all we do, enabling Speech and Language Therapists to provide quality interventions as part of many different multi-disciplinary teams using the available evidence base and adding to it.”
Among tomorrow’s highlights will be discussions and presentations on SLT in Neonatal Units, the development of students to help grow the future workforce and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work across both organisations to support their communities.
Charlotte added: “We are also excited to welcome Steve to learn all about our fantastic work in Walsall and Wolverhampton.”
The event is taking place at GTG Training in Bearings Drive, Wolverhampton, between 9am and 1pm.
Professor David Loughton CBE, Group Chief Executive of the Trusts, will also be in attendance.
