14 MayNADP Audiology Survey and Conference

logo nadp

In order to better understand the current NHS audiology service provision, NADP (the National Association of Deafened People) is conducting a survey on your deaf people’s experience of these services.

The data will be collected, analysed and used as evidence to represent the audiology service users in national instances and bodies, such as NICE, Action Plan on Hearing Loss, and in particular the Person Centred Approach advocated by NHS England.  NADP will be presenting the results of the survey at its conference on 16th June 2018.

NADP aims to help influence and shape the current and future policies regarding these services for a better provision; a provision which would respond accurately and efficiently to the various and sometimes complex needs of individuals.

By answering this questionnaire, you’re helping us to gather these evidences and build our argument for a better provision.
