Speech Therapy

  • Our Services 

The Speech Therapy department specialises in swallowing management and communication disorder management.

Our team of speech therapists provides these services to inpatients and outpatients within the main hospital, and at the TTSH Rehabilitation Centre located within Ang Mo Kio Hospital. We also collaborate with the Ministry of Health to provide regular service to various nursing homes located throughout the island; as well as home visits to patients through the Community Rehabilitation Program (CRP).
