Speech and language therapy opportunities

Many people with Parkinson's experience voice changes including weakening of the voice, hesitancy, and loss of articulacy. Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) can help with this. Here we have tried to gather useful information about NHS and other services that may be able to help you with maintaining your voice.

Please let us know of any other information you think should be added here. We are always happy to receive suggestions by email to admin@oxfordparkinsons.org.uk.

Your GP can help you with referral to the NHS SALT service. In addition, PwP or their carers can access the service directly. You can find more on the NHS website at this link.
