Mary

Turnbull Message from the RCSLT Chair

T

his is a quote from my service’s ‘feel good file’: “I want to say a big thank you for your help… it has been a massive success, genuinely life-changing stuff”. Recently, a colleague involved in a national project, which took her to a variety of services, told me the experience made her proud to be an SLT. I believe we can also be proud of our professional body, the RCSLT. It plays a crucial role in supporting us all to aspire to and achieve the standards of practice reflected in such comments. In recent years we have witnessed growing professionalism and skill in campaigning and influencing on behalf of members and people with communication support needs. The highly successful justice campaign has resulted in the development of SLT posts in this sector.

Much of the RCSLT’s work during the year – reviewed on pages 4 to 11 – has supported our members and services in facing the financial challenges ahead. Our progress on commissioning guidance is detailed overleaf. The RCSLT has also appointed a renowned public affairs company to support us in developing and implementing the Giving Voice campaign – aimed directly at safeguarding against financial cuts to speech and language therapy. One of the highlights of the past year for me was the honours ceremony in Wales,

where we made our first Assistant Practitioner of the Year Award. All the nominations were of an excellent standard, underlining what an invaluable part of our workforce assistant practitioners are. Also honoured during the year were several senior RCSLT figures – CEO Kamini Gadhok, Ireland Policy Officer Alison McCullough and Ireland Country Councillor Heather Crawford all received MBEs. Congratulations also go to Janet Scott, coordinator of the Scottish Centre for Technology for the Communication Impaired, who received an MBE for services to speech and language therapy in Scotland. As always, our success has been made possible through the hard work and commitment of our officers, trustees, councillors and members who give of

“Our success has been made possible through the hard work of our officers, trustees, councillors and members”

their time and talents in so many ways. I thank you all. I would also like to congratulate our former Director of Policy and Partnerships Nick Smith on his successful election to Westminster. Nick served us well and it is great to know another MP has a good knowledge of speech and language therapy. I extend our gratitude to our patron the Countess of Wessex, our president Sir George Cox and senior life vice president Sir Sigmund Sternberg for their steadfast support of our work. We congratulated John Bercow on his appointment as Speaker of the House and much appreciate his ongoing interest in the RCSLT. As we look forward I know for many of you it will be with some trepidation. I can assure you the RCSLT is absolutely committed to supporting the profession and will be ‘Giving Voice” for its members and those with communication support needs both to governments and in the public arena. ■

Kaminii

Gadhok Message from the RCSLT CEO

I

n 2009, the downturn in the economy led to an increasing focus on productivity, value for money and efficiency savings within the public sector. Service cuts, structural changes, service integration and a focus on generic management have impacted heavily on the profession with a loss of uni-professional leadership across many areas. As we went into the 20092010 financial year, the RCSLT committed to identifying how we could position the profession in light of these challenges and show that SLTs are part of the ‘solution’. We also wanted to support local speech and language therapy services to rise to the current challenges, and identify ‘levers’

linked to national and local priorities. For example, in England, we have engaged members on the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) agenda. We were thrilled that five out of the 70 submissions accepted by the Department of Health were from SLTs. These opportunities and the campaigns we have run are essential in highlighting the value of speech and language therapy in improving outcomes for people with communication needs and swallowing disorders, and in making the economic case for investment in services for this vulnerable population. We hope the resources we have produced, including Q-SET and our commissioning guidance, have

“We hope Q-SET and our commissioning guidance have been supporting local services in influencing local decision makers”

been supporting local services in influencing local decision makers, and will continue to do so. We also recognise the importance of supporting our members to use evidencebased practice, for example via our 2010 Research Study Day. In recognition of the need for us to do more at local and national levels in response to the economic challenge, the RCSLT Council approved plans for our Giving Voice campaign, to provide a strong platform to support influencing as we move into more severe public sector funding constraints. We hope this campaign will also provide a springboard for the profession to make the most of the planned National Year of speech, language and communication in 2011. Giving Voice will reinforce the publicity for speech and language therapy for children in England that will emerge from the work of the Communication Champion, Jean Gross. It broadens the scope of Jean’s awareness-raising activity to cover the rest of the UK and include adults as well as children. 2010-2011 will be a challenging year. I promise that the RCSLT team will continue to do everything possible to support members and people who need support with their communication or swallowing. ■
