Hearing aid loop
A hearing aid loop system has been fitted at our front reception desk. There is a sign at the desk to alert the deaf patient with hearing aids to turn their hearing aid to the T-position – this operates at a frequency the patient can pick up on their hearing aid and they can hear the speaker.
The interpreter company used by the NHS is FirstPoint – or Sign Health (http://www.signhealth.org.uk/interpreter-information/) we fax them the details (time and date of appt) and they source an interpreter (who is available – male or female as needed). We require at least two weeks notice for this service so please do let us know in advance. Due to the communication process between the doctor and patient please book a double appointment.
