Amy Handley discovered just before Christmas that she had hearing loss in both ears and tinnitus. Amy wanted to explain how she felt before she found out about her hearing loss and how she feels now.
Since the diagnosis Amy has also decided to run the Great North Run in order to raise money for Action on Hearing Loss.

December was a busy month for the Local Engagement South East team, with celebratory launches taking place in two of their new service areas.
The first took place in Sutton House, Hackney in which service users were invited to come and hear about the hard work Action on Hearing Loss have been doing in the area, supported by Barts Health NHS Trust. ‘Hear to Help’ services in City and Hackney have been running since September, co-ordinated by Community Support Officer, Stefan Kimonos. The launch was a great opportunity to celebrate the drop-in clinics, with the Speaker of Hackney and Paul Breckell himself also attending.

When hearing aid user Linda Parton found out about proposed cuts to NHS hearing services in North Staffordshire she was horrified to think that in future people who develop hearing loss may not be able to benefit from hearing aids in the same way she has.
Yesterday Linda took a stand against the cuts in her area by joining our protest outside the Clinical Commissioning Group’s board meeting. She tells us about her experience on the day and why this cause is so important.
