UK annual CI update: 2020-2021 data now available!
Collecting CI data regularly is really important to see trends over time and to enable planning of services. 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. This is about half the figure in the previous year, due to the pandemic, but good 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:
