If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you come unless you hear otherwise. See all our information about COVID-19, including our most current visiting information.

Drop-in sessions for children under five


""Do you have questions about your child’s speech or language development?

Is your child on the waiting list for speech and language therapy?

Would you like some advice?

Are you worried that your child is not talking or doesn’t understand you? 

If you are worried about your child’s communication skills and your child is not known to our service, please come to one of our drop-in sessions.

To attend a virtual session please email gst-tr.contactslt@nhs.net stating your child’s name, date of birth, and GP surgery and ask for a virtual drop-in appointment with a speech and language therapist. You will be given information about how to access our virtual drop-in sessions. These sessions are for parents or carers only.
