Our Specialist Outpatient Clinics:


If you have been offered an SLT appointment, please see your appointment letter for details.  If you cannot attend, please contact 021-4922880 as soon as possible so we may;

  1. Facilitate the early offering of your cancelled appointment to another patient

  2. Arrange a further appointment

  3. Remove you from the waitlist (if you feel you no longer require the service)


If you have another appointment in CUH within a close timeframe to your Speech and Language Therapy appointment, please contact us. We will try to rearrange your appointment with us to a time and day which will reduce the number of visits to CUH and duration of your visit. Please understand that this may not always be possible.
