The RCSLT’s Bulletin is the foremost monthly magazine for speech and language therapists, providing the latest speech and language therapy news, features and job opportunities. RCSLT members receive a copy of Bulletin in the post at the beginning of each month, and can view past issues of Bulletin online.

In celebration of our 75th birthday, we have highlighted a few Bulletin covers from the past!

January 2001

Jumping forward to 2001, the once text dense pages of Bulletin have moved to a slightly more modern layout that we might recognise today. This issue features a letter from the editor, news of the New Standards ten million pound grant for English education authorities towards speech and language therapy, as well as features on hearing impairments and treating vocal nodules. Read it here.   

June 1945

Only the second issue of Bulletin (then known as The Bulletin) ever printed, the June issue of 1945 reported on a  ‘successful annual conference and dinner’, member news, and even outlines structure of Bulletin as we know it today. The then editor, Mary Topping, requested members to submit their letters to the editor, book reviews and many other features you will find in today’s Bulletin. Read it here.

October 2005

In 2005 the RCSLT celebrated it’s 60 year anniversary, the issue walks members through the ages, from World War II to 2005, passing through the swinging ‘60s and the Millennium. In 2005, the profession welcomed 200 members to its conference in Birmingham, announced the launch of an online CPD diary, and looked forward to another year. Read it here.
