Action on Hearing Loss (Formerly RNID)

One in six of the population has some form of hearing loss, rising to over half of people over 60 years old. This is a condition affecting a high proportion of patients, and yet they can face issues when visiting their GP, from communication problems to difficulties booking appointments, as outlined in a recent report from Action on Hearing Loss entitled Access All Areas. Please see below a link to guidance for GPs from Action on Hearing Loss (formerly RNID) which aims to make surgeries more accessible to people with hearing loss.
