Near Me resources for BSL Users

Article | 16 May 2022

Near me have added some useful information and resources which BSL users may find helpful.

They encourage the use of Google Chrome voice to text function and here is a case study of how it has been used.

They have also developed a BSL Near Me video, which helps callers understand about the platform

Also many boards and health services have enabled the use of interpreters on Near Me.  This means an interpreter can join the consultation and provide support during the call, this includes BSL interpreters.

There is also an easy read leaflet available which provides information about Near Me appointments and a Near Me information leaflet for children and young people
