Have you had good or bad experiences with the health service, either with your doctor or hospital? Do you want to know what SignHealth have been doing to improve D/deaf people’s experiences with the health service? Our campaign is called ‘Sick Of It’ because D/deaf people are fed up with poor access to the health service.
What is ‘Sick Of It’? It’s SignHealth and University of Bristol’s research into D/deaf people’s health. The report highlighted evidence that the health service is failing D/deaf people because of communication barriers and poor access for Deaf people who use BSL.
We are currently fighting for changes/improvements in the health service, for example, improving access to give D/deaf people equal rights to that of hearing people. You can help, too.
Would you like me to visit your local Deaf Club/Centre to give a presentation about our ‘Sick Of It’ report, and give you an opportunity to ask questions?
If you’re interested in finding out more about our ‘Sick Of It’ campaign, contact Samantha at for further information. Please spread the word!
