Deafness and Hearing Loss Toolkit
Published: 2 December, 2020
Hearing impairment can have a major impact on daily functioning and quality of life. It can affect communication, social interactions and work leading to loneliness, emotional distress and depression.
RCGP have developed a Deafness and Hearing Loss toolkit which supports GPs and GP trainees to implement the latest NICE guidelines and NHS Accessibility Quality Standard and guidance across the UK. The resources developed aim to educate GPs and trainees on deafness and hearing loss, help reduce variations in accessibility to GP practices and ensure deafness and hearing loss are considered across all aspects of primary care activity including consultations and continued care.
