When we use health and care services, we should all be given information to do this in a way we can easily read or understand with support. This is the law, since the Accessible Information Standard came into effect from 1st August 2016.
Healthwatch Cambridgeshire want to know what’s really happening for people locally. Are services as accessible as they should be? They are working with Cambridgeshire Deaf Association to talk to Deaf and hearing impaired people.
CDA are organising three events that Healthwatch will be coming to. There will be BSL interpreters at each event. The dates and times are at the bottom of the screen.
You can be involved in a group discussion or talk about your experience confidentially.
Please do come along and talk to Healthwatch. Without you, there is no project, no report and no change.
You can also tell them about any other experience of health or care that you or someone important to you has had. They want to know where services are working well and where they need to be improved.
