Hi Anais,

I hope we can change the culture and the systems that support it but it wil take time and energy, and you’re right – there will probably always be these kinds of incident. However, we are engaging with universities so that hopefully there wil be a new generation of SLTs who know about private practice and value it. And our CEN membership is growing which suggests there is a large group of SLTs who really care about this issue.

There’s a lot of work to do but I think that, as a profession, we have to come together; ultimately it’s our clients who suffer if we don’t.

Very best wishes,
