Hi, my name is Rebecca.

I work as a physiotherapist and live in London.

I started my current job in February this year. Initially it was very difficult because I didn’t have interpreters and I rely on lipreading and BSL. I was struggling until June when I finally got ATW funding and used this for booking interpreters.

Since then, things have improved at work. Support from interpreters does overcome most communication barriers but not all. I still face challenges every day and feel there is still work to be done.

Tackling these barriers alone is very difficult, I need some support. I’d like to improve the accessibility of our (NHS) health services for all deaf workers and service users and see joining the campaign as an opportunity to make my voice heard and to help drive change with people who share similar interests as mine.
