High Court to hear GMC not guilty cases
Dr Robert Muir has been given an award for making his surgery more accessible to deaf-blind people, after being nominated by a grateful patient.
Dr Muir, a GP in Chippenham, Wiltshire, rearranged his newly-built surgery extension when it caused problems to the deaf-blind patient.
The practice, which received a National Deaf-blind Friendly Award, also painted its door frames a contrasting colour to the surrounding walls to help partially-sighted patients.
Dr Muir said it had been
'very embarrassing' to find the patient was having problems so soon after expensive renovation works.
He said: 'These are not things you think about until they are pointed out to you.'
