I see a lot of patients and staff (including myself) struggle with communication barriers in healthcare, especially lately with masks making this even harder. It's taken me a long time to realise that despite not being completely deaf I can still be a part of the deaf community, and so I've been educating myself and trying to learn BSL for the la
HI Flic. Its great to read this. I wish you all the best with your BSL adventure. I am so confused as to why when i am in hospital , The Royal National Nose Ears and Throat Hospital, for procedures on my ear, that it is impossible to communicate with the doctor or any of the nurses because i am deaf with out my hearing aids, and not one of them can use BSL and i have been going there for many years! Its great to see the younger generation taking part in correcting this. Thank you. Take
