Fiona Campbell (BSc Hons, Post Basic Certificate) is a Lecturer in the Speech and Hearing Sciences Division. She is also an affiliated member of the Clinical Audiology, Speech and Language Research Centre (CASL).

I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) from the University of Strathclyde in 2000 and have extensive experience of clinical work as a Speech and across a range of services in NHS Scotland. I was a Visiting Lecturer on the SLT programme at QMU from 2007, before taking up my full-time position in 2013. My main clinical interests are acquired speech, language, communication and swallowing disorders  in adults. I was seconded to Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) in 2010 to pursue my interest in improving participation of patients and the public in the work of NHS Scotland. I currently serve on the Committee of the British Aphasiology Society (BAS).

Affiliations/Memberships to Other Organisations:

  • Member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (MRCSLT),
  • Registered SLT with Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Research/Knowledge Exchange Centre Membership:

My clinical research has focused on my interest in understanding the lived experiences of people with acquired speech, language and communication difficulties e.g. the impact of stroke on family caregivers and family relationships; supporting self-management in people living with communication disability. I am also  interested in the impact of new technologies on clinical practice with people with aphasia.
