Who we are

The Feeding team consists of Dietitians and Speech and Language Therapists specialising in feeding difficulties.  We see children in both Joint and Speech Therapist only outpatient clinics at Snapdragons and Special Schools in Medway.

What we do

The Speech Therapist will assess the child’s physical feeding skills whilst they are eating and or drinking in the clinic and make recommendations based on this assessment. Where there are also nutritional or dietary concerns the Dietitian will also carry out an assessment and make recommendations in line with these feeding recommendations.

How can I access the services

Your GP, Consultant, Health Visitor, School Nurse or other Health Professional may refer to us.

All referral forms should be completed and forwarded to medch.childrenscommunity@nhs.net
