Quizzing politicians about deafness and hearing loss

Posted on: Wednesday, February 18, 2015 by Alan Jones

Paul BreckellOn 2 March Action on Hearing Loss is hosting a unique election event – and there is still time to be a part of it! Action on Hearing Loss Chief Executive Paul Breckell looks ahead to the event and explains why this event is so important and how you can get involved.
