How the NHS provision fights with discrimination towards people with disabilities?
Social contacts and networks are also essential to experiences of well-being and are key to an active and satisfactory life in old age. This may lead deaf people to have mental health issues and isolation due to communication barriers. It is essential to have leisure access because it helps with the mind and body for all human beings especially those with mental health issues. It is important that deaf people have access to these leisure activities such as deaf clubs, sports, cinemas, this may allow them to feel included in society without having issues with accessing any of leisure. For example, having to go to the cinema, deaf people expect to see subtitles on the screens, which they have it insulted but it only for limited movies, times and dates. So deaf people tend to be frustrated because of the limited access to the subtitles in the cinema. This may follow by Deaf Gain: “the myriad ways in which both deaf people and society at large have benefited from the existence of deaf people and sign language throughout recorded human history.”
The NHS provision was created to provide good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of wealth. In principle, the NHS has to provide the correct services for everyone, including those who are concerned about their health. It is believed that Deaf people do experience discrimination in services provision: the communication difficulties, lack of understanding of Deaf culture, inaccessible information, barriers to education and employment. With is a reasonable approach to tackle this issue could be to give deaf people the services that they need, this may improve the health inequality and it gives deaf people to be included in the society, not feeling isolated.
