The range of services offered by Health Deafinitions is based on a modular approach that is bespoke to the needs of your organisation. Package Options include the following. As your CCG may have a Deaf community with varying needs we encourage you to meeting with us to discuss how these options can work best for your patients and budget.

All of our health education based material is accredited by The Information Standard and developed in partnership with the Deaf community, through our volunteer network and community liaisons
