Healthwatch focus on Hearing Loss services
NHS England estimates that 1 in 5 people in Shropshire, over 64,000, suffer from some degree of hearing loss. This is significantly higher than the national average for England. Healthwatch Shropshire is the local champion of the patient voice and would like to hear about experiences of NHS hearing loss treatment and support. We are aware that some people have been struggling to access ear suction services at their local GP and would like to get a more detailed picture of all audiology services and treatments both in GP practices and in hospitals and clinics.
