Deaf News: Hearing Link joins forces with Patient Opinion to gather views on NHS services

Posted on August 19, 2014

The UK hearing loss charity Hearing Link has joined forces with Patient Opinion to make it easier for people with hearing loss and their families to report back on their experiences of NHS services.

Patient Opinion is an independent and non-profit organisation that gathers patient feedback on health services in the UK. The feedback is then shared with NHS professionals and managers to help shape future service provision.

You, a family member, carer or friend can give your feedback through the Hearing Link website. Just go to

Dr Lorraine Gailey, Chief Executive of Hearing Link, said:  “Patient feedback is essential for the NHS so it can learn from individual experiences and use them to shape the way in which it delivers future services.

“I would encourage anyone with hearing loss that uses NHS audiology services or related NHS services to feedback their experiences – good or bad. You can be sure by completing the online form on our website that your view will reach the people who can make a difference to these essential services.”
