Some patients benefit from the text-based service provided by Relay UK, which allows people who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate by phone.
Relay UK acts as a third party between the caller and recipient, relaying your typed messages to the hearing person you want to talk to, and then relaying their message to you by text.
Please take a look at Relay UK’s website for more information – www.relayuk.bt.com
If you need us to contact you this way, please let a member of the Patient Care team know.
