This is a vital service which the Health Service used extensively last year. It is clearly needed and should be funded.

I work with a colleague who has been left feeling isolated and lonely because of the many societal changes Covid has necessitated. He accepts these, but it doesn't make it any easier. This is yet another attack on his rights and I feel is challangeable under the 2012 Equalities Act.

I feel it is important that deaf people or those who need to sign have access to the needed support and fairness as others

The proposition to deliberately obstruct access to healthcare for people with hearing difficulties is obscene and immoral.

Have you watched deaf people having a conversation using BSL? Did you wonder what they were talking about? That's how many deaf people feel ALL the time. They deserve to have access to communication. It shouldn't have to rely on donation.

Thanks for adding your voice.

It’s 2021, WHY is it that the government take steps forward (that the deaf community have fought years for) then take 10 steps back??? It makes NO sense! This should be improving not taking away access!!! Signed and shared!
