BSL Act

NHSGGC BSL act long term plan presentation from Paul Hull on Vimeo.

It's sad to see the national health service endorsing people like the British Deaf Association which has next to no grass root signing support and insists deaf people do not need captioned access as well  Not even for other deaf who sign.

Their relentless mantra of deaf don't speak, can not read or want English,  and deaf don't want text access rambles on and on, and seriously undermines access requirements of most patients with deafness and loss.  The majority who don't enjoy ANY of the access they are being given, because it isn't signed.  This is what happens when you give extreme minorities to much rope.  Awareness goes down the pan.
