  • GP
  • Ryegate consultant
  • speech and language therapy

Nurseries/schools cannot refer directly.  Parents must go to the GP to ask for a referral if no other health professional is already involved.

If the child has been seen in the past by the service and discharged, the parent or nursery/school can re-refer.
