Maintaining essential services to support your health and wellbeing

Hearing impairment

Any type of hearing loss can affect confidence and can ultimately lead to social isolation and depression. If you have any concerns about hearing loss it is important to get tested – the sooner that support is put into action the better and there is a large amount of support out there. Contacting your General Practitioner is also important as hearing loss could be due to ear infection or a build up of wax in the ear; both of which are easily treatable.

Apps that can help

How the rating works

There are an increasing number of digital health and wellbeing apps available. Orcha help indicate whether an app appears to be safe and of value across a number of rated areas. Any score below 65% would indicate that an App has some issues that users should investigate further prior to using this App. Scores below 45% indicate that an App has considerable issues or challenges and in its current form is potentially unhelpful or unsafe.
