Nobody’s ever called a ‘blind old fart’

More than 10 million people in Britain have hearing loss. Given the aging population and the popularity of loud music and MP3 players, it’s estimated that in 20 years this figure will be 15 million.

Most of us will live long enough to know from personal experience what deafness is like: 70% of over 70s have significant hearing loss. We will enter a world of frustration. If you have lived in a country where you struggled to understand the language spoken all around you, you already know what it’s like.

"LocumDeck has been a very useful platform for me as I have only started being a GP locum from March this year. The transition from salaried GP to GP locum was smooth for me due to LocumDeck. It has been a very useful platform for me to get bookings and also to keep on top of the administrative side including invoices. It is very easy to manage my availability and terms and conditions which otherwise would be a difficult matter for a GP locum to go through during each booking. I also have used the FAQ section for help with pensions and other issues with GP locum work and have found this very useful. "
