  • The typical starting salary for speech and language therapists in the National Health Service (see NHS Careers ) is around £20,225. This can rise quickly to £24,103 - £32,653 (salary data collected Jan 09). Other employers, such as charities and local education authorities, offer comparable pay.
  • The salary for senior speech and language therapists starts at around £33,247 and can rise to £42,508. Principal and lead speech and language therapists with significant management responsibilities can earn up to £53,432 (salary data collected Jan 09).
  • National salary scales apply within the NHS. These have been reviewed in recent years, under the NHS Agenda for Change. Individual Trusts have their own terms and conditions.
  • Full-time NHS allied health professionals work 37.5 hours a week. Hours are typically nine to five with the possibility of some extra hours as and when required.
  • The workplace may be a hospital, health centre, day-care centre, rehabilitation unit, school or pre-school, a client's home, prison or young offenders' institution. Therapists may work in several different locations during the week.
  • Self-employment/freelance work is expanding. Many experienced practitioners do some private work and an increasing number see only private clients.
  • Jobs are available in most locations, although there are more opportunities in urban areas.
  • Opportunities for flexible and part-time work are good. Career breaks and job-sharing are common.
  • Men are currently under-represented in this profession as a whole (approximately 96% of speech and language therapists are female), although they are represented at senior level.
  • Stress may be an issue in this profession and can be caused by a number of factors including: the workload; expectations of patients and relatives; difficulties in liaising with a wide range of other professionals; and financial/resource constraints. The particular challenges of a post depend on the clients' circumstances, for example congenital disorders, physical and mental disabilities, illness (e.g. Parkinson's Disease, throat cancer), drug or alcohol dependency and accidents causing head and neck injuries.
  • Although travel within a working day is frequent, absence from home overnight and overseas work are uncommon.
