Procedure for using the Deaf Texting Service

From your mobile phone send a short text message to the designated NEDOC text number containing your name, the illness that concerns you, and if you are able to travel to the treatment centre.

The triage nurse receives the message on a computer in the call assessment centre.
The nurse replies to the text instructing the patient of the time and location of the next available attendance time at a treatment centre.

The triage nurse informs the staff in the selected treatment centre of the expected arrival of a patient with speech/ hearing difficulties.
