As part of their ongoing research, the JSNA Project Team received a detailed response from staff at the Deafness Support Network in Macclesfield.

The response highlighted the need for further research into the experience of D/deaf people when accessing health services. 

This initial report documented personal experience and comments from D/deaf people who communicated with project staff through a BSL interpreter.

Further research was undertaken in February 2015 to include people with visual impairment and sight loss.
