North Staffordshire CCG Online Survey

The CCG is currently reviewing whether we continue to provide NHS funded hearing aids for adults with mild to moderate age-related hearing loss.

However, before we make any decisions on the future of this service, the CCG would like to know your views on this proposal. This is to ensure that local people have the opportunity to share their opinions on our proposals and review of hearing aid services. We want to seek their views and understand their experiences.

Please complete the survey, we want to hear your views. If there is something you feel that has not been covered in the survey or you want to raise additional points which will help us shape the review, please complete the additional comments sections and return to us, so we can take those views into account.
