Over the last 11 weeks, many hospital appointments have been cancelled due to the Covid19 pandemic but now some appointments are being rearranged and are starting to go ahead.
ATLA The Association of Teachers of Lipreading to Adults say:
“If you have an appointment at any hospital, they are taking your temperature when you arrive, with an ear thermometer. If you wear hearing aids with moulds in the ear, they will make your ear hot! So to avoid being sent away, or worse, take out your hearing aid on one side before you go, but take it with you to put in after your temperature. has been taken”.
