RCSLT statement on redeployment in future COVID-19 surges

The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists has published a statement advising against redeployment of speech and language therapists (SLTs) away from services that are already under extreme pressure.

The statement details the impact of redeploying SLTs on outcomes for service users, which could result in significant risks to service users’ safety and wellbeing and that of their families and carers.

The statement outlines the impact on service users and services revealed by RCSLT surveys conducted in 2020 and 2021.
