National Bone Conducting Hearing Implant Registry
A registry of users has been developed for national use by a large group of interested professionals. It provides information relevant to funders, professionals and users; national data will be available on The Ear Foundation website, each participating centre will have their own data available in graphical form after contributing their data quarterly.
It collects data including numbers implanted, ages, indications, hearing loss, and usage rates. The following documents provide information of the latest data we have received (up until September 2016).

National Bone Conducting Hearing Implant Registry - Aims
Currently there is no information about the number of Bone Conducting Hearing Implant users or how effective this system is. Funding for these devices varies greatly across the country; therefore, this information is vital to secure the future funding of Bone Conducting Hearing Implants. By collecting evidence of how useful and effective the Bone Conducting Hearing Implant is, it is hoped that funding for the systems around the country will be secured.
For this reason, The National Bone Conduction Hearing Implant Registry has been developed to quantify the number of Bone Conduction Hearing Implant users in the country and to gain an understanding about usage, different devices available and reasons why people are fitted with the devices. This information will provide information for patients, professionals, commissioners and ultimately, aimed for NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence).
