How to refer to Speech and Language

The service offers an open referral system. Referrals can be made by doctors, health, education and social care professionals, as well as carers, young people, and their representatives.

Referral forms are available for professionals.

Parents / carers / clients are welcome to call the office and we will be happy to support them to self-refer. Alternatively, teachers, health visitors, GPs etc. are able to refer on behalf of the client if they are asked to do so.
