Disabilities

a doctor using sign languageWe are committed to making our hospitals accessible to everyone and are continuously working to improve access our services and facilities.

We have recently been working with Disabled Go to produce a  detailed online access guide to our facilities to better enable disabled people to access services.

If you have mobility requirements and need assistance please inform your consultant or nurse, or contact PALS (patient advice and liaison service) for support.

If you wear a hearing aid or have hearing difficulties, please advise your consultant or nurse how you prefer to be communicated with.

Some wards and departments have listening devices or a loop system.  We can also provide a sign language interpreter on request, and we use a web-based sign language communication programme.
