Training in British Sign Language (BSL)

New courses for 2019!
We are pleased to announce new training dates for this popular staff training course.

In addition to lunchtime options, we have now introduced an evening class at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. But don’t worry if you can’t get to that particular site, we will be arranging courses at various locations across NHSGGC in 2019. This will be based on demand, so it’s important to get in touch if you want to take part. Refresher courses are also planned – see below for details.
