This session with the Deaf Support Group in December included a short survey and discussion and was guided by Healthwatch Southwark staff, a British Deaf Association (BDA) staff member and the Deaf Support Group Co-ordinator who scribed.
Interpretation was provided by a freelance British Sing Language Interpreter who was already familiar with the group.
The findings from both parts of the session are below:
Key challenges or barriers in accessing health and social cares services
- Needs specific to the community and good experiences
- Ways to offer 'good quality services'
