We are pleased to announce, that after much campaigning, especially by Edenb’s Sight Supportb’s Dual Sensory Loss Group, a new Audiology Clinic has been opened at Penrith Community Hospital. It will be warmly welcomed by all those in the locality with hearing loss, but it will be particularly beneficial for those whose loss of both hearing and sight has made travelling to Carlisle difficult and stressful
Initial assessments will still be carried out at Carlisle Infirmary but follow-up appointments for people in Penrith and the immediate area will now take place, when appropriate, at Penrith Hospital.
If anyone wishes to attend our DSL meetings or if you are aware of a friend or relative who will be interested then please contact ESS office on 01768 891724 for further details. All new members will be made very welcome, and ESS can also provide home visits if required.
