WHSSC commissions Cochlear Implant and Bone Conduction Hearing Implants (BCHI) for the population of Wales on behalf of the 7 Health Boards. Health Boards in South East Wales, South West Wales, and South Powys have been working together to identify the best way to deliver an implantable hearing device service in South Wales. Services for patients living in North Wales and North Powys are not included in this work.
WHSSC would like to engage with key stakeholders to gather their views on the future commissioning arrangements for all specialist hearing implant device services.
The engagement process will start on the 4th January 2023 and run until the 14th February 2023.
The following documents have been made available to help you to understand these changes and how this may impact on the hearing implant device service.
Interested stakeholders can complete a questionnaire on line via (https://forms.office.com/r/s8bSYTaU5K ).
