"I'm visually impaired - can't see the labels on my medications"

I'm visually impaired, have cerebral palsy and use a wheelchair. I am prescribed many types of drugs but despite requests, the labels are of small print.
I also ask for appointment letters to be sent in large print but this frequently does not happen. I would also like the letter & information to be on yellow paper which is a good colour for most V.I. people.
I have asked PALS to arrange this but they have said they cannot. I feel really upset about this as it stops me being independent as I have to ask other people to read my letters & labels.
