NICE guidance on adult onset hearing loss UPDATE – consultation on scope document underway, comments welcome – Deadline 26th April 2016

Further to a previous news posting on the website (2nd March) and by email to members, a consultation is now running relating to the scope of this important piece of work.
The work that is now underway is planned to complete in May 2018. Outcomes will be highly influential in shaping the delivery of adult Audiology across the UK countries. The BSA is encouraging members to register as stakeholders in order to keep up to date with progress and contribute. Note, this can be achieved by registering on behalf of your organisation (eg NHS trust or health board or university) rather than as an individual. You therefore need to be mindful that any contributions that you make may be labelled as coming from your organisation.
The BSA is also registered as an organisation but in this instance we feel that our collective impact will be greater if members contribute directly as indicated above. However, you are invited to copy your contributions to me in order that I can reinforce collective points. (john.day@wales.nhs.uk)
Register through the following link: http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/indevelopment/gid-cgwave0833 See also http://www.nice.org.uk/Get-Involved/stakeholder-registration
Update: Once registered as a stakeholder you are now able to comment on the draft guideline scope, which can be found at: https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/indevelopment/gid-cgwave0833/consultation/html-content

The deadline for comments is 26 April 2016.
John Day, BSA Trustee
