Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Implements Teleswallowing® Pilot Study

Teleswallowing

From August 2013 to March 2014, the Speech and Language Therapy Department at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust implemented a Pilot Study of Teleswallowing® as an alternative service delivery model.

The results of the Pilot Study demonstrated significant time and cost savings over the traditional service delivery model of face-to-face swallowing assessments at an out-patient clinic or at the care home.

Blackpool can also use the Teleswallowing® infrastructure to facilitate delivery of other healthcare services to nursing and care homes in the geographical area. Click the links below for more information.
