I just wanted to tell you how good the A card about hearing issues is. I bought one a few years ago whilst attending lip reading classes at the City Lit. It has sat in my 'misc' file ever since.
Last week I had an overnight hospital stay and I took the A card and put it on my bedside table. I might have had to remind hospital staff to speak slowly initially, but I never had to repeat it. It was so effective."
