Hi vjones2

If you have only spoken to your GP about this then I would ask them for a referral to a specialist. A specialist may be able to suggest adaptations or treatments. Specialists that deal with hearing loss after brain injury are generally based in services that come within general neurology or neuro otology or audiology - this depends on local arrangements in your area.

Please feel free to contact our helpline if you wish to discuss further. You can contact the helpline Monday to Friday (9am to 5pm) on free phone number 0808 800 22 44 or you can email helpline@headway.org.uk.

Best wishes
