How to refer

Referrals are accepted from any health professional including GPs, medical consultants, allied health professionals or another member of hospital or community team. You can also refer yourself.

The person being referred must meet the referral criteria. If you are not sure if the person needs a referral you can contact the department by phone to discuss the situation or email bfwh.askaspeechtherapist@nhs.net.

Simply fill out our on-line referral form.

All referrals are screened and prioritised by a qualified Speech and Language Therapist. Appointments are offered according to priority and availability of therapists.
