Your spotlight on local services

Your views wanted about Direct Access to Adult Hearing Services - Over 3 weeks left to complete a survey


The impact of hearing loss in adults can be immense both at a personal and a societal level leading to social isolation, depression, loss of independence and employment challenges. Five health commissioners across Durham and Teesside are working together to re- procure the Direct Access to Adult Hearing Services for Age Related Hearing Loss (age 55+)  Audiology Services.

The CCGs are;
NHS Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees CCG
NHS South Tees CCG
NHS Darlington CCG
NHS Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield CCG
NHS North Durham CCG
They are in the process of gathering the views of service users and local stakeholders about their experience of the current service, and seeking suggestions on how to improve a future service.
Service users and members of the public still have over 3 weeks to get involved and to give your views to help them do that.
Online survey link to take part www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Audiologysurvey2018 
You can also access information about the engagement via the CCG websites: www.hartlepoolandstocktonccg.nhs.uk ; www.southteesccg.nhs.uk ; www.darlingtonccg.nhs.uk
