We are a network of d/Deaf and hard of hearing health professionals who share information and support. As the site develops, it will include more practical information about strategies and equipment to enable us to work in healthcare and discussion of issues such as training and employment. This will also be relevant for our trainers, supervisors and employers, occupational health staff, audiologists, hearing therapists, ENT staff and other related professions. And you can contact me for advice and information.
UKHPHL discussion group temporarily on hold.
Update: 23/07/2014. 5quidhost support has done wonders and we’re back in action!
Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail, MSNand Live have been tightening up their spam settings, which causes problems for legitimate groups like ours. I had a mountain of bounce messages from them yesterday. I think it means that group messages haven’t got through to anyone with these addresses since a message at about 8:25 yesterday morning. This happened a month ago and my web provider was able to change settings, so I’m getting back to them today. But I don’t know if it’s going to work. Or if it does work, whether it will keep happening.
In the meantime, I think it’s best not to send messages please as they won’t get through to a little under half the group. Thanks.
I’ve been wondering about our name. As well as not being the snappiest of names, “UK Health Professionals with Hearing Loss” isn’t how everyone would like to be described. So, what other suggestions do you have?
Lisa and I anguished over the name when we first set the group up. Both of us were fairly recently deaf so didn’t know the nuances and tensions there have been in the d/Deaf/HoH community/ies.
The site is being redeveloped and I apologise that many of the links and some information need to be updated. I am working on it. Do let me know when you find something that is broken. Updated information would be an added bonus! And tell me what other information you would like to find here. What topics will be useful?
Most pages have a link to leave a comment or you can use the contact form to get in touch with me directly.
I’m developing the site substantially over the coming year. While this is happening, some of the navigation is probably going to be a bit haphazard. You’ll find some pages using the main menu bar near the top of the page and the sub-menu on the left. Others from the links under “Categories” in the sidebar on the right. I recommend you looking under both as they don’t link to the same pages. You can also use the search facility. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. At the moment, my priority is to get the information online somewhere as soon as possible. Streamlining navigation will take longer.
