GP and hospital appointments can be difficult for us. To make communication easier, the NHS (in England only) has introduced a clear process to make sure people who are deaf or hard of hearing can communicate well when they need NHS care or publicly funded adult social care.
To help you explain what support you need, Action on Hearing Loss have produced a template letter for you to send to your GP practice manager, or a card which you can fill in and give to the receptionist the next time you’re at the surgery.
