Two films made with Birmingham Institute for the Deaf about the problems faced by deaf people living with life-limiting illness when communicating with health professionals.
Phillip and Cheryl 1 (9:34)
Phillip is a deaf biker. His wife Cheryl is partially deaf and has cancer. Phil needs to know as much as he can about Cheryl’s illness so he can support her. But the medical profession often overlooks Phil’s deafness and overrides his communication needs, putting undue pressure on his relationship with Cheryl.
