CI South West is a social group made up of Cochlear Implant (CI) users and candidates in the South West of England, including those who received their CI at Southmead/BRI Hospitals in Bristol, UK.
The main purpose of this group is to provide an opportunity for CI users and candidates in the South West to meet each other, ask questions and share experiences. Partners and friends are welcome too.
We plan to organise CI social events in Bristol, Exeter, and Taunton (and also elsewhere in the South West if there is demand). A secondary purpose of this group is to share information and experiences about Southmead/BRI surgical and audiology units.
We welcome people from a wide variety of backgrounds -- whether you are born deaf, late deafened, sign or don't sign or a bit of both. All CI makes are welcome (Advanced Bionics, Cochlear, Med-El and undecided). We look forward to hearing more from you!
