New Guidelines To Prescribe Hearing Aids At First Opportunity

The health watchdog NICE has introduced new guidelines which is urging doctors to prescribe hearing aids for people when they show the first sign of hearing loss. At present many GP`s, under pressure from their hard up health boards, do not prescribe them for people who even have moderate hearing loss, instead asking them to learn lip reading to cope with their disability.

But we should because good hearing is essential, it helps to keep us connected with the outside world and other people and helps us to live our lives without any limitations.
