COMMUNICATION HELP FOR THE DEAF/SPEECH IMPAIRED
To enable our customers who are deaf or have speech problems to communicate with us, and us with them, we have installed a minicom telephone unit in our Customer Services Department, 0845 7585873.
Wherever possible, the call will be answered by a member of staff in the Customer Services Department. However, if necessary, the unit will answer incoming calls and automatically send a brief answer-message. The customer can then leave a message or a request for us to phone back (via the minicom system). If a message is left we will confirm receipt of it.
Details on minicom telephones for the deaf/speech impaired are available from the Local Authority Social Services Department.
