This Hearing Loss Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) guide presents evidence on the prevalence and impact of hearing loss. This JSNA guide should be used alongside NHS England’s Commissioning Services for People with Hearing Loss: A Framework for Clinical Commissioning Groups which was published in 2016.
