THE COMMENTARY piece "The Two NHS departments that need total reassessment" presented important areas that need improvement to better serve the health needs of the people.

A few therapies were mentioned.

In terms of speech therapy, stammering is the most prevalent speech disorder.

There are many great resources in the UK that help stammerers, particularly the British Stammering Association and the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children.

Also, the website of the U.S.-based charity the Stuttering Foundation offers countless free resources for children and adults.

All one needs is access to a computer.
