Adult CI User Groups

The St Thomas’ Hearing Implant Centre are regularly running group sessions throughout the year for all adult cochlear implant users.  These groups aim to offer adult cochlear implant users, their family members and friends the chance to meet up and chat over coffee.  They are run by experienced professionals who will offer up-to-date information on a range of topics.  These interactive groups will also involve group discussions, hands on experience, problem solving and practise.

Venue: St Thomas’ Hospital, Therapies Room, 3rd Floor Lambeth Wing

These groups are also an ideal opportunity to use your listening skills in a social situation.
