Referrals

Referral information by service

 

We have an open referral system which means that anyone who knows or works with a child or young person can refer, including GPs and healthcare professionals.

If you’re referring on behalf of a parent, you must get consent from the child’s parent or guardian before you send your referral

Children with a musculoskeletal condition (MSK)

If a child aged 6 to 16 has a musculoskeletal (MSK) condition, for example, painful joints/limbs, back pain or a sports injury, please refer them directly to the Physiotherapy service at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Referrals for feeding and swallowing difficulties must be made by a GP or consultant with a full medical history attached.

Early years and children up to Reception class

Families and staff from early years settings can access advice from a speech and language therapist without a referral. Call our advice line on 01296 566045. The advice will help you to incorporate speech and language targets into everyday activities at home and nursery.

You can also access our early years advice sessions.

School children

The Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) within the school should be the first point of contact.

For children in Key Stage 1, the Speech Link education-led evidence based packages support identification and intervention for speech, language and communication needs.

You can request further support for children in Key stage 1 and above through our school advice sessions. You do not need a referral to access these sessions.
