Hands off our hearing aids!

Hands off our hearing aids

Listening to the previously inaudible gentle lapping of waves on the Isle of Bute

Cookie Bite Chronicles commenter Juliet has asked me to put in a shout for the AOHL ‘Hands off our hearing aids’ campaign, before the public consultation ends at midnight on 31st Jul 2014, in 6 days time. In a nutshell, ‘North Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has announced proposals to withdraw the provision of NHS-funded hearing aids for adults with mild to moderate age-related hearing loss.’ ie the majority of NHS hearing aid users, and the group who gain most benefit from them. You can find more information from AOHL and a link to the North Staffs CCG survey here There’s also a link to the Thunderclap campaign here for those of you on Facebook/ Twitter/ Tumblr There’s no suggestion (yet) that anyone who currently has NHS hearing aids would have them taken away, but those of us who currently benefit owe it to the hearing aid users of tomorrow to object to this very cruel cut. Make your voice heard!
