Hearing Loss

EDM number 772 in 2014-15, proposed by Alan Meale on 04/02/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House is aware that hearing loss is a serious health condition which can and often does have a significant adverse impact on people's health, wellbeing and quality of life, with at present an estimated 10 million people in the UK with such a health prognosis facing the risks of developing other conditions such as dementia or depression; recognises that NHS audiology services provide vital support for people who suffer hearing loss and related adverse conditions, allowing them to retain their independence, maintain relationships and stay in employment, giving them the essential support to help them cope; notes the World Health Organisation's predictions that by 2030 adult onset hearing loss will be in the top 10 disease burdens in the UK; acknowledges the forthcoming publication of the National Action Plan on Hearing Loss; but calls on the Government to request the NHS to commission NICE to prioritise the immediate development of a hearing loss clinical guideline to establish and maintain quality standards for patients suffering hearing loss.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
