Joe Cullinane

Scottish Labour Councillor for Kilwinning

Speech and Language Therapy cuts

SNP led North Ayrshire Council has cut its full funding contribution to Speech and Language Therapy. Joe has been approached by concerned parents whose children desperately need the specialist support that this service provides.

The SNP administration claim that the NHS couldn't tell them what 'additional' service they received for their funding contribution but Joe has exposed that the NHS gave a very grave account of the potential impact of the cut at a meeting with Council officials.

Joe asked the Council's Scrutiny Committee to undertake an review of the service to ensure that it meets the needs of the North Ayrshire community. The Committee agreed to do so and this work is currently ongoing.
