Barnsley children’s speech and language therapy
Service changes due to Covid-19
The Barnsley children’s speech and language therapy service are working differently at the moment due to Covid-19. We are still working to help children and families who are referred to us. We are still accepting referrals but many of our appointments are now by telephone or video. Where clinically essential work or activities cannot be done by telehealth, we are offering face to face appointments.
