HEALTH

DSN has linked with Sign Health – contributing to DSN’s aim of promoting Self Care to the D/deaf Community and to further develop, maintain and improve the health & wellbeing of D/deaf people in Cheshire.

As part of Sign Health’s counselling services, they offer these self-help videos, designed to help you with some psychological problems.

Sign language

NHS 111 offers a video relay service that allows you to make a video call to a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter.

The BSL interpreter will call an NHS 111 adviser on your behalf, and you’re then able to have a real-time conversation with the NHS 111 adviser via the interpreter.

You’ll need a webcam, a modern computer, and a good broadband connection to use this service. Visit NHS 111 BSL interpreter service for more details, including an online user guide.

When to use 111

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation.

Call 111 if:

  • you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • you don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call
  • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next

For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.

For immediate life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
