In SCILS’ latest email bulletin they linked to a useful ‘What Works’ guide from the NHS about Hearing Loss and Healthy Ageing, which we thought our members may be interested in. Access the free guide here for more information.

SCILS is a fantastic online resource where you can access a broad range of learning materials.
