Difficulty swallowing food or drink may be dysphagia. Dysphagia can impact health and wellbeing so it’s important to spot the signs. Older people and those with conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia, head and neck cancer or a history of stroke, may have extra difficulty swallowing.

Take the test to find out!

If it is an emergency and you are choking or have food stuck in your throat, please phone 999 or speak to a Healthcare Professional immediately before taking the EAT-10 test.
