The SLT Department encourages development of all its staff and offers regular peer and clinical supervision as well as access to CPD events and opportunities. We are dedicated to the continued growth of our profession by having regular student placements with opportunities for SLT Apprenticeships in the near future.

The trust encourages flexible working to support staff in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Staff wellbeing is very important to our team with our own Wellbeing Champion ensuring the team is kept up to date with the latest wellbeing support, activities and events.

The Fylde Coast is a beautiful place to work and live. The area is well known, not just for Blackpool, but also for the smaller coast towns such as Lytham, St Annes with places like the historic Lytham Hall in close proximity. The surrounding countryside offers quaint villages, stunning country walks and a host of restaurants, cafes and pubs.

With access to the M55, larger city centres, such as Preston and Manchester and the picturesque Lake District, are within easy driving distance. The train service also enables access to other areas, with London only a 3-hour journey away.
