Creating information you can understand about your own health and care
Straight Talkers is a not-for-profit organisation run by communications professionals with over 35 years combined experience in the care sector.
- We work with hospitals, GPs and other care providers to ensure the information they need to give to patients is provided in the best way for each individual e.g. easy read format, audio, large font email.
- We also work with technology suppliers so their IT systems can record patients' communication needs and share this information with other systems and care providers
As an equal opportunity employer we offer flexible working and employment to people with disabilities. We work in partnership with the voluntary sector and our local community to co-create solutions for our customers.
Straight Talkers is dedicated to supporting the local community and empowering individuals with disabilities.
