When you need to see a GP

Hearing loss, deafness and tinnitus should not be a barrier to you accessing healthcare and getting the help you need.

We have developed this information to help you understand the level of service your GP practice should offer you and how you can positively challenge a GP practice that isn't yet fully accessible. We have also included information to help GP's understand how they can deliver a better service to patients with hearing loss and know where to go for support and information.
