Want to refer your child to the NHS therapies service?

If you have concerns about your child’s speech and language or physical development you can find out how to self refer here. (This can be done before they start school too.)

As a parent, you can refer your child directly to the Children’s Therapy Service. If you would like to refer your child, please fill out the referral form found on the link above or call them on 0300 300 2019. A member of their team will ask you a few questions to get some background information before advising you on what will happen next and what to expect at your first appointment.


Please contact them if you have any other queries about how to refer your child.

If you have any other concerns, please use their telephone advice line on 0300 300 2019. You can call to discuss any concerns with their team of professionals. A speech and language therapist, occupational therapist or physiotherapist will be on hand to help out.
