Royal National Institute for Deaf: Get your free hearing check

Dear Editor,

SPRING is fast approaching, and with it the familiar sounds of the dawn chorus, as we listen out for the melodic blackbird, the beautiful song thrush and the sweet serenade of the blue tit.

Bird song is important to many of us – in new research from RNID, 73% of UK adults said they would miss the sounds of birds singing if they lost their hearing. This

World Hearing Day (Sunday 3 March), RNID is encouraging nature lovers to take a free online hearing check.

Missing the high-pitched calls and trills of birds is common for people who are experiencing undiagnosed hearing loss, and as changes in your hearing can happen gradually, they can be difficult to spot.

Over 360,000 people have taken RNID’s online hearing check, and many of them tell us they can now enjoy hearing birds singing again thanks to their hearing aids. One
person said, ‘There seem to be more birds in the garden!’ whilst another declared ‘I can hear birdsong in all its glory.’

It’s easy to take RNID’s online hearing check and it only takes three minutes – why not check your hearing today at
rnid.org.uk

Yours sincerely,

Crystal Rolfe,

Director for Health at RNID
