NHFT's countywide speech and language service helps adults over the age of 16 to improve speech, language, and swallowing. It offers individual assessment, treatment, training, education, and support.
The team supports patients to reach and maintain their best level of communication, as well as their capability for eating and drinking.
Who is this service for? Adults over the age of 16 who have an acquired problem with their speech, language and/or swallowing, or who have a problem with their voice or with dysfluency (the flow of speech).
How to access this service: If you need a voice referral, the team will need an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) report before an appointment can be made. If you have a swallowing problem, the team will need a written referral from your GP or consultant.
