Wakefield deaf society provides representation at network consultations to ensure deaf and hearing impairment issues are considered in proposals and new developments.
Representatives attend the Clinical Commissioning Group ‘PIPEC’ meetings and the Mid Yorkshire Trusts Access Group meetings to highlight issues patients experience when accessing health care appointments. Examples of the work we do in this area can be found on the Wakefield Deaf User Partnership Tab.
Wakefield Deaf Society has a partnership with Healthwatch Wakefield. This partnership aims to improve patient experiences with regard to access to healthcare and communication. A representative of Healthwatch frequently attends the Deaf User Partnership meetings.
