Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, attended a Parliamentary drop-in organised by Action on Hearing Loss to get his hearing screened as part of the charity’s 1,2,3 campaign to encourage more people to do the same.
The campaign wants to encourage people to address their hearing loss by highlighting three simple steps: take an initial check on Action on Hearing Loss’ website, to see your GP, and lastly to get help with your hearing.
“It’s been great to find out more about Action on Hearing Loss’ work supporting people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss and to find out just how easy it is to get your hearing screened.
“With 11 million in 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 of my constituents who suspect that they are losing their hearing to follow Action on Hearing Loss’ simple three steps to get their hearing checked.
