WHITEFORD BACKS RNID SCOTLAND’S CHECKS FOR A HEALTHY HEARING FUTURE

Tuesday, 20 October 2009

SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford has joined RNID Scotland’s call for people to value their hearing and take the charity’s specially developed hearing check.

At the Scottish National Party conference in Inverness, Eilidh took RNID’s five-minute hearing check, which assesses your ability to hear someone speaking with background noise – similar to being in a crowded room – and helps identify whether you have a hearing loss.

Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford said:

“Many people don’t realise how important their hearing is in their everyday lives, until they start to lose it. I’m lending my voice to RNID Scotland’s Hearing Matters campaign, which is encouraging you to look after your hearing by visiting www.rnid.org.uk/check or dialling 0844 800 3838 and take immediate action to avoid experiencing unnecessary isolation from friends, family and colleagues.”

Delia Henry, Director of RNID Scotland, says:

“On average, people take 15 years to deal with their hearing loss and, in that time, a person’s quality of life can be greatly reduced. We urge people in Banff & Buchan to follow Eilidh’s example take our check today, so that you can start addressing any hearing loss and ensure you don’t miss out on leading a fulfilling and active life.”
