Guildford and South Surrey Branch

 

Speech Maintenance classes

 

Local NHS speech therapists are trained to help people with Parkinson’s who may develop problems with speech, swallowing, saliva control etc.

 

Further details from your Parkinson’s Nurse or directly from the Royal Surrey Speech Therapy Department (based at Milford Hospital) on 01483 956472.

 

In addition, we offer an online monthly Loud and Clear speech maintenance class.

 

Currently there are two of these classes, each with up to 10 members each month. They are held the first Monday and Wednesday of the month, at 3.30 pm for one hour, delivered over Zoom.

 

They are led by Celia Bacon who is a trained speech therapist and her website can be found at www.vox-humana.net

 

The cost of participation is minimal as the Branch subsidise all who take part.
Members who join these Loud and Clear classes pay the Branch directly to participate. These payments are in advance for 4 months at a time.

 

For more details on participating in these classes and on paying the Branch to participate, contact Steve Heron, our Treasurer: sheron@guildfordparkinsons.org.uk
