UK annual CI update: 2020-2021 data now available!
Every year BCIG asks UK cochlear implant centre coordinators to share the number of new patients who have received cochlear implants, and the number of people with cochlear implants that they look after. Thanks to all the centre coordinators for sharing their data. In the UK from 1-4-20 to 31-3-21, 848 new people received cochlear implants. Lower of course than our usual annual figure, but great to see that so many people did get to benefit from a CI, despite the pandemic. You can also see the figures over the years with the trends over time which is really helpful. See the full figures here:
