BSHAA is the professional body for Hearing Aid Audiologists providing quality hearing care to customers throughout the UK. As well as meeting the needs of audiology professionals in private practice, BSHAA also works nationally and internationally to influence and shape the future of hearing aid provision and optimising client benefit.
The Society's members practise in large, medium and small companies and as sole practitioners and we work with these companies to deliver the quality customer care of which good, up to date, standards of professional practice are a key element.
BSHAA is a funding member of the Hearing Alliance, a coalition of charities and professional representative groups committed to preventing and reduce the impact of hearing loss through public health and early diagnosis; improving access, quality and integration of hearing services and support; and promoting inclusion and participation of people with hearing loss in society.
A BSHAA campaign, Suffering in Silence, year on year surveyed hearing provision within the NHS and revealed huge waiting times for people needing help with their hearing loss.
The Society has been an active contributor to the Department of Health’s Improving Audiology programme, which was set up to address the problems. BSHAA has long championed the benefits of giving patients real choices for their NHS hearing care, and really improving access to any of the many private hearing care centres on and off High Streets throughout the land.
BSHAA submitted evidence to the Commons Select Health Committee which considered the Government's White Paper on health reports and the Society welcomes the Government’s plans to introduce patient choice for adult hearing services from any qualified provider, starting in 2012.
