Scheme will aid the deaf in hearing

Have your say

A NEW guide has been launched to help deaf people in Edinburgh pick the right ­hearing aid.

Charity Action on Hearing Loss Scotland joined forces with consumer experts Which? to offer the in-depth advice.

Action on Hearing Loss Scotland estimates that 340,000 adults in Scotland need hearing aids but don’t currently have them.

Charity director Delia Henry said: “This new guide will have a great impact by informing people about the process of getting their hearing tested, the full range of hearing aids available, how to get the best performance and what to do if they encounter difficulties.”
