Cleft lip and palate speech and language therapy team

The Sheffield cleft lip and palate and resonance service works with the Trent regional cleft lip and palate service. We provide speech and language support for communication and if appropriate eating and drinking issues for people with cleft lip and palate or resonance issues in Sheffield. We also support speech and language therapists who work with people with communication issues due to cleft lip and palate in Barnsley and Rotherham. The work with people in Barnsley and Rotherham may include assessment by us, but not delivery of speech and language therapy.

Services such as surgery and some assessments are undertaken in Nottingham. The following leaflets have been produced by the Trent regional cleft lip and palate service – Nottingham University Hospitals Trust.
