 Michael Palin Centre Staff

Many of the staff have been working at the Centre since it opened in 1993. This has enabled the team to develop a high level of clinical expertise, to develop specific areas of interest and to undertake a range of additional post-graduate qualifications. Members of the team are involved in clinical work with children, young people, parents and adults who stammer and offer a full individual consultation service, specialist therapy packages on an individual or group basis, a range of teaching within our national and international teaching programme, supervision of generalist and specialist therapists, writing and research.

All therapists are registered members of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and are registered with the Health Professionals Council (HPC) and have Clinical Records Bureau (CRB) checks in place. All staff complete regular mandatory training and participate in on-going Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
