Organised in collaboration with Hearing Loss Cornwall and the Deaf Community Centre in Camborne, the NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board (ICB) has arranged the event to improve access to health services and advice to address the specific challenges faced by individuals experiencing hearing loss, following valuable feedback received from the deaf community during the ICB’s ‘Community Conversation’ engagement programme.

Clare Greenwood, Executive Officer for Hearing Loss Cornwall, said:

“It’s heartening to see the NHS actively engaging with our community and addressing our needs. This event will be instrumental in providing vital information and support to those of us with hearing loss.”

Susan Bracefield, Chief Nursing Officer for NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly ICB, said:

“Such events create an inclusive space where individuals with hearing impairments can access healthcare resources and information easily. It’s a step towards better healthcare accessibility for our community.”

The drop-in event at Cornwall Deaf Community Centre, Camborne, TR7 8JF is on Wednesday 10 January 2024, open from 11am to 1pm. It welcomes everyone, with British Sign Language interpreters available for enhanced accessibility. Health professionals from the NHS’s vaccination programme will be providing advice and vaccines to those eligible, as well as offering NHS Health Checks which measure height, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol with the results shared on the day and advice on further support also provided.
