Access the service
The service accepts referrals from a range of sources including GPs, Consultants, care homes, external acute and community Speech Therapy teams and self-referrals. A detailed description of the communication and/or swallowing problem is required along with all medical history information. The service encourages completion of the Adult SLT referral form to ensure all required information reaches the service and the referral can be processed without delay.
To make a referral, please use our Single Point of Access (SPA), which operates between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.

Who will I see?
Referrals are triaged by a Speech and Language Therapist and placed on a waiting list. You will receive a letter confirming receipt of your referral and will be contacted as soon as an appointment can be offered. Following an individual assessment, follow-up appointments are offered either as one to one or group sessions.
