The UKHPHL e-mail group is a discussion, information and support network for health professionals with hearing loss.
We welcome anyone with any degree of hearing loss who is, or is considering training to become, a health professional in any discipline.
We also welcome those with close involvement with health professionals with hearing loss, for example professionals working with d/Deaf and hard of hearing people, those in departements of education and training and professional bodies, occupational health and disability officers.
Information about how to join is in the FAQ here. Membership is free.
We also recommend the website and forum of the Association of Medical Professionals with Hearing Loss which has an international membership, most being in the USA. With a longer history of disability access in the USA than in the UK, they are a rich source of experience.
Some information, such as funding, legislation, occupational health services, training courses and equipment supply varies between countries so the UKHPHL e-mail group can be a forum to share this information. It is also an opportunity to build a supportive network because sometimes it can be helpful to know people closer to home.
