Hearing

Information about staying healthy is easy to come by if you are hearing, but very little is made available in sign language for Deaf people. That’s part of the reason that Deaf people are generally not as healthy as hearing people.

Many Deaf people find visiting the doctor a stressful experience, but it is vital that communication barriers don’t stop you from coming and interfere with your health. Before visiting us, be sure of what you want to ask and the help you want to get. Tell staff at the surgery that you are Deaf and need an interpreter and we will do our best to find one. We will also book you a double appointment so you do not feel rushed.
