Healthcare leaders call for action on hearing loss

NHS England and the Department of Health have produced a new action plan on hearing loss to support services for deaf people and those with diminishing hearing.

The plan has been developed with a number of organisations including Public Health England, hearing loss charities and those whose hearing is directly affected.

Aimed at commissioners, GPs and healthcare providers, the report identifies multiple health and social issues associated with hearing loss. It recommends ways that services for children, young people, working age and older adults living with hearing loss can be improved.
