      Why people with hearing loss or deafness would benefit from an integrated response to long-term conditions.

      Joining up, a report from Action on Hearing Loss and the Deafness Cognition and Language (DCAL) Research Centre, looks at the issues around providing health and social care services to people who have hearing loss or who are deaf and also have other long-term conditions, including dementia, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, Parkinson’s and sight loss. It shows how large cost savings and improvements to quality of life could be achieved from better provision of services.

      In particular, we report evidence of a strong link between hearing loss and dementia, and show how at least £28 million could be saved in England by properly managing hearing loss in people with dementia.

      Joining up calls on health departments, commissioners and providers of health services throughout the UK to recognise hearing loss and deafness in assessing, diagnosing and managing people with other long-term conditions.
