Help for people with hearing & sight needs

We consider the needs of people with impairments affecting their hearing or sight.

Overview

At each hospital, lifts have automatic voice announcements at each floor and lift buttons are in braille.

Auslan interpreters can be arranged for deaf or hearing impaired patients. Find out more about our interpreter services.

Guide dogs, audio dogs and other therapy animals are encouraged to accompany people around the hospital. If you need help with toileting animals and giving them access to drinking water, talk to Reception or your care staff.
