Leigh Deaf Club regularly invites speakers from organisations who can provide information to the club members. A sign language interpreter is always present to ensure the information is communicated correctly. For example the team from www.healthandcaretogether.co.uk/ came to the Deaf Club as they were doing a survey throughout the borough about the issues facing deaf people when trying to sort out a medical problem, i.e. arranging appointments with doctor or hospital. Their final report can be viewed here Health and Care Together - Final Report March 2011 There has been an update in January and October 2012 to the above report. Available here.
2014 - Annmarie Stone from Healthwatch Wigan visited the club to gather evidence from deaf people about their experiences with accessing health services. Annmarie is a key member of Healthwatch Wigan - See DeafHealth Champions Newsletter
