Strike action will be taking place from 7am Saturday 24 February 2024 to Thursday 28 February 2024. Please continue to attend your appointments unless you are contacted and told otherwise.

The strike action may mean our A&E is a lot busier than usual, which means the waiting times will be longer. If you need help which is not life threatening, please use 111, Pharmacies, GPs or Urgent Treatment Centres. Thank you for your understanding during this period.

NAIP information sheets and rehab resources

We have produced a range of leaflets, information sheets and rehab materials for patients and their families.

During your/your child's appointment the clinician, teacher of the deaf or speech and language therapist, may suggest a particular information sheet or rehabilitation resource from this page to help you to make progress in your listneing, understanding or communication. The resources are listed in the drop-down sections below.

If you cannot find the resource you are looking for please let your clinician know or contact us at naip@nuh.nhs.uk.
