Community Hearing Loss Forum

Our Community Hearing Loss Forum was held on 9 May, with attendees including patients, community members, as well as hospital volunteers and staff.

The forum focussed on hearing loss in people over the age of 60. Did you know 1 in 3 people over 60 have hearing loss? 

Current research is looking at the association between untreated hearing loss and cognitive decline.

Guest speakers were ENT surgeon Dr Jean-Marc Gerard and audiologist Dr Caitlin Barr, discussing why early intervention is so critical, what clinical
treatments are available now and where research and technology will take us.
