“An update on our current capabilities for balance sufferers care, and plans to get back to more normal care”
Due to the pandemic, lock down and necessary NHS focus on health care for those directly affected, the suspension of normal care for most other health issues has caused great anxiety for all people with any on going health issues. For balance disorder sufferers currently in need of treatment, we have witnessed first hand the devastation this has caused to some of our own members. Prof Peter Rea – is currently part of the National NHS working party advising and recommending how the NHS looks to return to more normal care for otology and balance for our country. Prof Rea has agreed to share with us both the current levels of care and the proposed detail of our recovery to more normal treatment – as his report will be published in time for our next meeting.
As members of this group we will probably be hearing this news before most others, so we strongly recommend if you are concerned about your one access to treatment for the remainder of this year, you join us on our next Zoom meeting. Prof Rea has kindly agreed to take questions from all members present and offer as much help and guidance as is possible.
Numbers on Zoom will be restricted to 100 attendees, and it will be a simple matter of first to join from 10.55Am on the day.
