A campaigning charity is urging Girvan residents who are Deaf or have hearing loss to complete a survey about their experiences of accessing hospital, health centre and GP services.

Action on Hearing Loss Scotland has produced a short questionnaire to gather information about whether individual communication needs were met when people who are Deaf or have hearing loss tried to book or attend health appointments. Girvan residents are invited to complete the survey online at www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk/access or email: scotland@hearingloss.org.uk or call telephone: 07388 227407. A BSL version can be taken at: www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk/access

Delia Henry, Director of Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, said: “We want to find out about how well health services are meeting the communications needs of people in Girvan who are Deaf or have hearing loss and also where there could be room for improvement.”
