I am a clinical specialist speech and language therapist at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, Essex. Working in conjunction with consultant neuroradiologist, Dr Sanjiv Chawda, I offer a videofluoroscopy service to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with swallowing problems. In addition to extensive experience in swallowing and acquired communication difficulties, I have a special interest in bilingualism for which I have presented at conferences and have published articles. I am passionate about the quality of care I give to her patients.
