Sussex SignLive Access For Deaf People Now Available At Sidley Medical Practice
Deaf people across East Sussex are set to benefit from a new Video Relay Service (VRS), which has gone live in all GP practices and offers telephone consultations to British Sign Language (BSL) users.
The new, improved service will see GP practices being able to offer the consultations with support from SignLive, a free to download App that connects the caller to a fully qualified interpreter before connecting to the recipient.
It will mean d/Deaf patients across East Sussex will now be able to call their registered practice for free, using the standard telephone number, speak with receptionists and book a telephone appointment with a GP, just as a hearing person can.
