Childrens Hearing Service Working Group (CHSWG)

The Childrens Hearing Service Working Group (CHSWG) is a multidisciplinary group set up to improve the services for children and their families with hearing difficulties.  The Group meets twice a year and this will include Parent Representatives as well as Health Care professionals such as Paediatricians and Health Visitors, Teachers of the Hearing Impaired and Voluntary organisations such as National Deaf Childrens Society (NDCS) Representatives. 

If you are interested in being involved with the CHSWG or becoming a representative you or your child must be diagnosed with a hearing loss and aged under 18. 

CHSWG representative

Kim Bobik has agreed to be the parent representative contact for the Children’s Hearing Service Working Group (CHSWG).  Kim has a son called William, who was diagnosed at the age of one and fitted with binaural hearing aids.  He attends a main stream school within a hearing impaired unit.  Kim is an active member of South Hampshire Deaf Childrens Society.

The CHSWG meetings are held bi-annually and it is important that we get feedback from the service users, which includes you and your children.  At the meetings we do not discuss individual children but do raise any concerns and can put forward any suggestion on how to improve the service.

 If you would like to be involved in these meetings or have any thoughts on service improvements please do not hesitate to contact Kim.
