Good News - NHS Hearing Services Review
Bromley Chain are supporting Monitor (the regulator for health services in England) in conducting a national review of hearing loss services for the over 55's in England.
Monitor is keen to reach local people in Bromley who have experienced hearing loss over the last two years and have approached the NHS for help. The review is aimed at local patients or patient organisations who are either using, or supporting those using, adult hearing services. The quickest and easiest way to share views is to complete this online survey. The consultation closes on the 4th September 2014.
We are pleased that Bromley is keeping the Sensory Support Service as a whole but re 'Market Testing' it's still 'watch this space' as the Council is preparing to outsource the Service as part of the Education Package. We want to see the same Service at the same standard with no dilution or fragmentation of the Service.
Social Services in Bromley for Deaf Adults and Children: We think there should be a specialist Social Worker for Deaf people. Bromley has not had a Specialist Social worker for the Deaf for 4 years. Let us know your experiences!
