Communication Support for Patients with a Disability

The Accessible Information Standard says that all providers of adult social care and health services must provide additional communication support for patients with disabilities, their parents and/or carers.

We need you to tell us if you need additional communication support relating to a disability. This will allow us to highlight your additional needs on your patient record and enable us to provide you with the support you need, when using one or more of our services.

Please feel free to download our "Communication support for people with disabilities (Accessible Information Standard)" leaflet here.
