Hearing Loss Awareness Day

The Audiology Department at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust is holding an awareness day on 26th September at Northgate United Reformed Church in Northgate Darlington.  This event is in connection with Deaf Awareness Week to help people with hearing and hearing loss problems.  Free information will be provided. The drop in session starts at 10:30 and finishes at 3:30pm.  


Joanne Close, Audiology Services Manager said: " This is a great opportunity for people to come along and see what services the Audiology Department can offer, view our latest modern hearing aid range, get advice from our qualified, professional NHS staff and have their hearing screened too.  We will also have the facility on the day to allow people to see down their own ear canal and view their ear drum with our video-linked technology."

The last week in September is Deaf Awareness Week. It is also known as the International Week of the Deaf (or International Week of Deaf People). The purpose of Deaf Awareness Week is to draw attention to deaf people, their accomplishments and their issues.   During this week, many deaf organisations hold activities to celebrate and conduct public information campaigns to educate people about deafness

'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough - could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
