Speech and Language Therapy
Our Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) service provides assessments and support to adults (18 and over) who have a Hull or East Riding GP who have new communication or swallowing problems.
We support people with a range of health conditions that can affect speech or swallowing. This includes stroke, Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor-Neuron disease, dementia and head and neck cancers.
We also work with people who have longer term voice and fluency problems, such as stammering.
Please note: For those who have a Hull or Holderness GP and require support with voice difficulties or speech and swallowing difficulties related to head and/or neck cancer, this service is provided by the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Trust's SLT Team, based at Hull Royal Infirmary.
- If you have a Hull GP, please contact the Hull SLT Service on the Hull SLT Service number below.
East Riding Patients:
- If you have difficulties with voice production, you will need to be referred for an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) assessment by your GP. Once complete, the ENT doctor or your GP can refer you to the East Riding SLT Service.
- If you have swallowing difficulties, ask your GP to refer you to the East Riding SLT Service.
- If you have communication difficulties, you can self-refer on the number for the East Riding SLT Service below.
