Pre Hospital Communication Guide

We have developed an App version of the pre-hospital communication guide, which is available for everyone to use, you can download it to your phone for free.  The App is a tool to help communicate with those who have additional communication needs including:

  • People who are deaf and hard of hearing
  • People for whom English is not their first language
  • People with learning disabilities
  • People whose illness or injury affects their communication

The App uses images and a small amount of text to help you tell someone if you have had an accident.

Our app is available on iOS, Android and Blackberry.
