PEOPLE in Worcestershire are being asked to share their thoughts on the standards of care they receive at GPs, dentists, hospitals and care homes.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is particularly keen to hear from deaf and hard of hearing people about their experiences and has teamed up with Disability Rights UK to help make this easier.

You can leave feedback on the CQC’s website - and for deaf users there's the option to use SignLive or the RelayUK app to communicate by text.

Kate Terroni, the CQC’s chief inspector of Adult Social Care, said: “We are committed to addressing health inequalities and reducing barriers to care.

“The lived experience of people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and the wider community, is significant in understanding how care for them can be improved.”
