Visual or Hearing Loss

Do you have a visual impairment or suffer from hearing loss or deafness? We can help. We can provide you with letters typed in larger print or on coloured paper. We can provide a hearing loop, to allow you to hear your consultations clearly. Please alert one of our members of staff of your communication needs and we will help you.

There are also some other services who can help you with sensory impairments. This can be anything from practical to emotional support
