Sign Health – the national Deaf Health Charity and a key partner for the University of Manchester’s Faculty SORD (Social Research with Deaf People) team led by  Professor Alys Young – has launched a new national service for immediate BSL (British Sign Language) interpreter access in health situations.

This means that any health professional – staff or student – who needs to communicate with a Deaf BSL user and vice versa can now do so immediately via remote access interpreting in real time.

The service covers all NHS funded services in England and Wales and is free for all who use it during the coronavirus pandemic..
