London Speech and Language Therapy Workforce Scoping Project
University College London (UCL), in partnership with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT), was commissioned by Health Education North Central and East London (HENCEL) to undertake a scoping project of the speech and language therapy (SLT) workforce in London. The project investigated the whole London workforce, including those working outside the NHS to: a) provide a snapshot of the current London SLT workforce; b) estimate the levels of current unmet client need for SLT services in London; and c) predict future unmet need for SLT services in London up to 2025, taking account of a range of variables that might impact future need. We applied a mathematical modelling approach to a data collected from a range of sources. Our modelling indicated that there is a significant level of unmet need for SLT services in London currently, and that this gap will increase over the next ten years as a joint consequence of an upward trend in clinical need (client demand) and a declining trend in total workforce provision (supply).
