Patient Befriending Service
The Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, working in partnership with The Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People are providing BSL video befriending calls for all BSL users staying in hospital.
- Feedback tells us hospital stays can be especially isolating for deaf people.
- Befriending calls are available for anyone wishing to access these during a hospital stay.
- Ask the ward staff to arrange to connect you to us via the JusTalk app on the ward ipod.
Due to Covid-19, hospital visiting restrictions are in place. By working together, we can ensure patients stay connected.
