Adult Speech and Language Therapy Bexley

Coronavirus

We are having to alter some of our services in response to the demands that Coronavirus is creating. This means that we may have less staff and will be unable to continue to provide services in the way we usually do. Therefore, we may need to do the following:

  • We may carry out consultations via phone or video call
  • The frequency of our visits for your care might be reduced
  • If the care you receive is not essential, it might be stopped for the time being.

We will speak with you about any new arrangements we need to put in place. We will inform any other people involved in your care of any changes made. 

If you need to contact us, please call 0203 004 0092.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this time. 


The Adult Speech and Language Therapy team provides support to adults who have difficulties in swallowing (dysphagia) and communicating (dysarthria, dysphasia) that are not due to a neurological condition.

We do not offer therapy for stammering (dysfluency) or Voice therapy for ENT conditions or head & neck cancer.

Referrals usually come from GPs or care homes.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
