Senior speech and language disabilities - MAC inclusion report September 2009

Discussions with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapy (RCSLT) suggests that the shortage of specialist SLTs is a temporary situation which has come about because there has been significant recent expansion in the requirement for SLTs with specialist skills. In the short to medium term, overseas recruitment is a sensible strategy for alleviating staffing shortages for specialist speech and language therapists. This will enable overseas recruits to contribute to service and to provide training to enable the UK workforce to develop new skills.
