Latest News: We have recently received correspondence from the Royal British Legion with regard to the Veterans Hearing Fund which received £10 million from the LIBOR Scandal to support Veterans with a hearing loss as a result of military service. Unfortunately, it is not good news to many of you who are either waiting for funding allocation or being accepted by the Royal British Legion and, despite a further allocation of funding, they cannot meet the demand. Many of you will receive a letter from the RBL stating this and, although they are seeking further funding, it is unlikely that this will come to fruition.UKVHH is passionate and determined to continue to help Veterans with a hearing problem and have taken appropriate action to seek funding from other sources to ensure that both those registered with us and any further applications will be honored. This is not a ‘quick fix’ and will take some time for us to procure the funding and support however, we will keep you informed as things progress. I will state that our office team is working continuously with other organisations and this is looking extremely positive with many of the larger military charities and other outlets.It is important to us that we continue to help Veterans with hearing issues and will be branching out into other associated medical problems but once again, this is work in progress and involves working with other major organisations and charities to ensure that only the ‘best’ care is provided.We are determined as ever and despite being a challenge to us, we will take the ‘Bull by the Horns’ and work hard to get things back on track for you all.Keep an eye on our Social Media and website for future updates and remember we are “hear for you”
The Training Room
Opening our head quarters in Hinckley, Leicestershire has given us new opportunities to deliver regular educational events. The new HQ has a purpose built training room/meeting room where we plan to hold regular educational events.
We will regularly update this page with event details as we move through the year, so make sure you come back and view the page on a regular basis to see what is happening.
Our Schedule Over The Next Couple of Months
We have several educational events planned for the next year in our Headquarters. Each event will be on a different topic related to the Audiology field, Occupational Health and more!
We plan to undertake several events during the year all of which will have educational and awareness value for the public, companies and our fellow Audiologists.
We have included a calendar below which we will update with our training events as they come up. Our first event is the ‘REMS Masterclass’. This course was designed for Audiologists to attend and further their skill sets in real ear measurements.
