Update on paediatric speech and language therapy service:

Update on paediatric speech and language therapy service:


We have redesigned our service to children and families with speech, language, communication and dysphagia needs to reduce the risk of harm during the ongoing crisis. Our service is based on the reduction of harm and management of risk .Our paediatric therapists will continue to:


•           Manage new referrals of children triaged as in urgent need of support

•           Offer support to families for both dysphagia and communication based on their level of risk

•           Offer advice and support to professionals.


Almost all our work is currently through telephone consultation using a hub model.


We would welcome telephone contact from anyone with a concern.


Please encourage families to phone for support as required.


If you wish to speak to a speech and language therapist please phone 01685 351300. If you leave a message with our admin team, the appropriate therapist will get back with you.


Thank you


Chris Dowle.

Head of Paediatric SLT services.
