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.

27 MarBSL Costings Inquiry Group – Statement

Recent work with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Deafness (APPGD), by members of UKCoD, regarding an Inquiry into the cost of BSL recognition stalled due to lack of resources and change of government following the election in 2017.

A group, supported by UKCoD has agreed to scope a study on the ‘Delphi’ principles, as a viable and cost-effective alternative to a formal APPG Inquiry. The study would seek to ensure:

  • Good sectoral engagement and commitment
  • Good use of existing data
  • Developing a solid understanding of the ‘costs of BSL recognition’ for presentation to government.

The group also supported a proposal to draft a Private Members Bill as a parallel activity, it was agreed that it would be useful if members of this group could provide copies of drafts they may have prepared.

The chair of the APPG on Deafness, has raised a parliamentary question over which government department is responsible for BSL, the Leader of the House of Commons has agreed to seek clarification on this point.

The group is to meet again in two months’ time to discuss finalising the strategy and funding.
