Alongside our fulltime School Nurse, we also have weekly visits at the Academy by a local GP for our residential School and College students.
We have been closely linked with the GP and local surgery for many years. Both the surgery and our visiting GP are fully aware of individual health needs which may affect you as a young Deaf person. If you would prefer to see the GP at the surgery, rather than on the Deaf Academy campus, you are able to do this easily.
If you would like to see the GP, you can do this independently with full access to an interpreter at every session. All the information which you discuss with the GP and the interpreter is dealt with in the strictest of confidence.
