Deafness, the hidden disability

BSL as usual!

Throughout the spring and summer of 2019, Hearing Loss Cornwall have been part of discussions and challenges regarding the provision of British Sign Language interpretation services for the Deaf across Cornwall, with regard to accessing GP's, dentists and other NHS England services.

It is with great delight that we can announce, that following these intense and sometimes fraught discussions, also involving members from the Cornwall Deaf Community Centre in Camborne, Hearing Loss Cornwall have been advised that they can maintain their current service and provision with NHS England Soutwest, while the procurement of this essential service to the Deaf, is given a more detailed appraisal.

Hearing Loss Cornwall would like to thank all those involved in helping to inform this process which has achieved this positive outcome. Our charity is honoured to support deaf needs in Cornwall under many guises, working with Cornwall Council, the NHS, various health and professional providers and mostly with the d/Deaf themselves.
