"I wasn't just another number"

About: Six Degrees Social Enterprise (CIC)

(as the patient),

When contacting the service for an appointment, they asked me for a number from the slip the GP gave me. I told them I couldn't read it as I have sight problems.

They booked the appointment and then I got a letter in large type that I could read. It was nice that they did this for me without being asked to. All the other letters and information I received was also in large print.

It made my experience much easier and it felt more personal, I felt that I wasn't just another number or patient.
