I have been referred for the Lee Silverman Voice treatment as my voice is affected by Parkinsons disease and this is a very effective way of improving it. I was seen for my initial assessment and home work up in June but told that a place on the intensive part of the treatment, which is clearly indicated for me, is not available for at least 3 months and probably 6, if at all, due to staffing shortages, reorganisation and funding shortages. No sign of the programme yet and delays continue so unable to fully benefit from the Treatment. This will have an impact on my ability to continue in my work which requires me to communicate verbally effectively.
