Who is this service for?  

Communication and swallowing difficulties are often caused by:

  • Neurological disorders, such as stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or Motor Neurone Disease

  • Voice difficulties

  • Head or neck cancer

  • Other difficulties which may be related to ageing.

We only provide services in north Hampshire, which covers up to Tadley in the north and Bordon in the south.

There are Speech and Language Therapy services in other parts of Hampshire which are provided by other NHS Trusts. You can find your local service on NHS Choices.
