Hearing Loss UK Infographic

Are you losing your hearing? It’s a simple question but not always an easy one to answer. There are more than 10 million people (1 in 6) living in the UK with some form of hearing loss, of which 3.7 million are adults between the ages of 16 and 65, 1 in 10 are living with tinnitus and 45 000 children are being affected by some form of hearing loss. It’s entirely probable that your hearing is being affected more than you would imagine.
