Our lovely GP Susan Fairbanks is raising money for FSN a charity based in St Leonards which covers the local area.
‘FSN aims to provide effective and professional caring action without discrimination and favour for children and young people suffering the effects of poverty, disadvantage, neglect and abuse.’
She will be swimming in St Leonards. The distance is 2km from Azur to Goats Ledge and back, when the sea is safe. It could be this week or within the first weeks of October and if feeling energetic, she may swim to the pier...
It would be great if you could sponsor her via the Swim Happy group.
All money goes directly to FSN.

2. Access To New Service For Deaf Patients To Consult With GPs

Sussex SignLive Is 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.
