Topics I've Started
04 October 2012 - 10:38 AMHola folks,
The London Ambulance Service are doing a twitterthon today from 1200 so for any twitter followers here take a look.
@Ldn_Ambulance: We're going to be tweeting live from our control room today from
midday to midnight - full details here http://t.co/Bz07FMEv #999ambulance
I was also asked to be filmed talking about EmergencySMS, so I did two versions, BSL and spoken English, this is a link to the BSL one.
02 October 2012 - 07:01 AMI was watching the BBC news this morning as I enjoy having the BSL interpreter.
There was a story about not resuscitating people if they have a signed Doctors order called a DNR.
It is a very important topic and often misunderstood. Yet when the story started there was no BSL interpreting & the interpreter popped up at the end saying any questions visit the BBC website??????
Well yeah, I've got a question, "why no interpreter for such an important story when they interpret most if the rest of the programme?"
Yes they had subtitles which are great for me but for pure BSL users, subtitles alone aren't enough.
It would be like a hearing person reading an English book with random pages or chapters ripped out and replaced with a language they don't understand like Greek.
If anyone here has any questions about DNR -Do Not Resuscitate then please ask me here and I'll try and explain.
