Who we are

We provide specialist assessment, advice and support for people who have problems with their speech and language. This includes problems with communication, swallowing, stammering and voice difficulties.

We work with patients to help manage and minimise the impact these difficulties can have on their day-to-day lives. 

Appointments are offered via telephone, home visits and Attend Anywhere.

Our service is here to help people age 16 and over with speech and language problems. To access our service, you will need to have a Knowsley GP or be staying in one of our mental health inpatient wards in Knowsley. 

One of our speech and language therapists will meet with you and talk to you about your medical and social history, and your current difficulties and how they are affecting you. We may need to carry out an assessment to help us work out how we can best meet your needs.

Referrals for eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) are accepted from GPs, consultants, other health professionals and nursing homes that have been trained by the service.

Referrals from health professionals for communication, voice and stammering can also be made using the referral form.

You can contact the service on 0151 351 8545.
