Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham, is supporting Action on Hearing Loss’ 1,2,3 campaign to increase hearing screenings – and is encouraging people to get their hearing checked.
The campaign is to encourage people to address their hearing loss by highlighting three simple steps: taking an initial check on the Action on Hearing Loss website, seeing their GP, and lastly, to get help with their hearing. Action for Hearing Loss supports people with deafness, tinnitus, and hearing loss, and shows people how easy it is to get their hearing screened.
This is an important campaign and one I’m pleased to support. With 11 million people in the UK living with hearing loss, a number rising as the population ages, it’s more important than ever that people understand the importance of their hearing health. I’d encourage all my constituents who might suspect that they are losing their hearing to follow Action for Hearing Loss’ three simple steps to get their hearing checked.”
