If you are worried about a child’s eating and drinking, complete the referral checklist. This will help you decide if we are the service to help you.

For eating and drinking difficulties, we only accept a referral from medical professionals and the senior leadership team at Greenacre school (for Greenacre pupils).  Medical professionals include:
  • Health visitors
  • School nurses
  • GPs
  • Consultants
  • Dietitians
  • Speech and Language Therapists

If the child is at school or nursery, print off this placement letter and give it to their teacher. Ask them to complete it and send it to us.  This will give us more information about the child and the help they need.

What happens next

Once we receive the referral, we will contact the parent/legal guardian with the next available telephone appointment.  The child does not need to be present for this first appointment.
