      Facts on hearing loss

      11 million

      Hearing loss is a major public health issue that affects more than 11 million people in the UK.


      Hearing loss increases the risk of dementia by up to five times - but there is good evidence that wearing hearing aids can reduce this risk.


      By 2035, a fifth of the UK population will be living with hearing loss.
