Care worry for 600,000 deaf and blind people in Wales

The 600,000 people in Wales living with sensory loss are not having their basic healthcare needs met, according to a new report.

Deaf and blind people face a situation that is "still grim", according to charities Action on Hearing Loss Cymru, RNIB Cymru and Sense Cymru.

New standards were introduced by the Welsh government over a year ago aimed at ensuring equal access to healthcare.

But the report says little progress has been made.
