Hands off our hearing aids!

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! 

This would be devastating for people with hearing loss, leaving thousands of local residents unable to communicate in their day-to-day lives. If the cuts go ahead in North Staffordshire, who will be next? We could be looking at millions of people who struggle to hear being denied NHS hearing aids.

We're calling on anyone who values free NHS hearing aids to join us in the fight to stop these changes!

Hearing loss affects 10m people in the UK. It can destroy lives, relationships, and job prospects. It’s linked to isolation, depression and even dementia. One day it could affect you – or someone you love. Until we find a cure, Action on Hearing Loss will help those affected to cope, practically and emotionally.
