Petition Provide resources for cochlear implanted children to be checked in Jersey
It is difficult for people with medical needs to have to travel to London for the whole day for an hour’s appointment. Many children over here with cochlear implants are in this position. It costs States money for travel expenses and it’s a traumatic experience for the children.
There is also no help if processors become damaged, broken etc, or if equipment needs checking. In addition, cancellations due to travel disruption cause children to miss appointments because of the difficulty of rearranging them.
The States should provide the resources for children with cochlear implants to be checked in the Island.
