We want to hear from you!

We want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments please discuss this with us.

We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate.

Please tell a member of the team at your next visit if you need communication support

Thank you
