Hearing test for politician

Have your say

ROTHERHAM’S Mayor is going deaf for a morning - to highlight the everyday difficulties facing people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Coun Rose McNeeley and Andy Irvine, chief of community services at Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, will be plugging their ears between 9am and 11.30am tomorrow.

The event, at The Hearing Company, All Saints Square, has been organised by LINkrotherham, an independent organisation which monitors local health and social services and influences how the services are delivered, in partnership with The Hearing Company and Rotherham Deaf Future group.

After the plugs have been removed, Coun McNeeley and Mr Irvine will recount their experiences and describe what problems they faced.
