Support options in Milton Keynes

The Milton Keynes Hard of Hearing Group is now closed. The group may run again once the Covid pandemic is over.

At present, there are no support groups for anyone diagnosed with hearing loss, tinnitus, Meniere’s and pre/post cochlear implants.

If you are concerned about hearing loss, you can check your hearing online. Be aware that any result will be advisory and you will need your hearing tested properly at the Adult Hearing Services and Audiology Department.
