Referring Your Patients to the Speech & Language Therapy Department

Does your patient have a swallowing difficulty? Is it above the sternal notch level i.e. pharyngeal? Don’t forget that Speech and Language Therapy are able to assess swallowing function and arrange a videofluoroscopy if appropriate for both adults and paediatrics.

If high suspicion of pharyngeal/laryngeal cancer exists, please refer to ENT.

For lower, i.e. oesophageal, dysphagia please refer to gastroenterology.

For further information please refer to or contact the SLT Department on 07 579 8785.
