Your GP, local health centre and hospital are the main health services you might visit. But there are also health-related services available from charities and others. If you have communication needs, for example you need a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, ask your GP practice or health service about arranging this extra support for you. Health services including GPs have a responsibility to make sure everyone who needs their services can access them.
