NHS trust produces animation marking Swallowing Awareness Day 2019

AN NHS trust has produced a short animation around dysphagia; the medical name for swallowing problems; to mark:- 'Swallowing Awareness Day 2019.'  Swallowing Awareness Day took place on Wednesday, 13 March 2019 and is a national awareness campaign organised by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has produced the animation with the Trust's speech and language therapists, who are experts in working with people who have swallowing problems. The average person swallows more than 900 times every day. Like breathing, swallowing is essential to everyday life. But for people with dysphagia, it can cause significant problems and affect their quality of life.  You can watch the animation on the Trust's website now. Also if you think you might have problems with swallowing, make an appointment to see your GP for advice. Krystina Crolla-Barker, Dysphagia Lead at North West Boroughs Healthcare, said:- "Dysphagia is found across all our service user groups, and people who have a learning disability, history of stroke, progressive neurological condition, complex mental health problems and head injuries are all at an increased risk of developing swallowing problems. Despite this, there isn't a great awareness of the condition amongst the general public, so we were keen to produce an animation to highlight swallowing problems and the role speech and language therapists can play in supporting people who are living with dysphagia."
