Mrs Gemma Whitehead
BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy
I am an experienced registered Speech and Language Therapist and qualified in Speech and Language Therapy (BSc Hons Speech and Language Therapy) in 2007 from the University of Manchester. I have a specialist interest in voice and voice disorders, along with degenerative conditions and stroke which impact on voice, speech, communication and swallowing.
I have held Specialist Speech and Language Therapist posts in the NHS since 2009. I continue to work within the NHS and run a clinic by appointment at the Spire Regency, Macclesfield.
I have completed further training which has included LSVT (Lee Silverman Voice Training), Understanding and Managing Psychogenic Voice Disorders and CBT, Accent Method and Estill Voice Training. To attend for Voice Therapy a recent ENT examination and report is required (in line with The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists Clinical Guidelines).
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Gemma Whitehead at Spire include:
Spire Regency Hospital Macclesfield is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
