Joanne Milne faced an agonising four week wait after her operation before the device could be switched on and tested. This video shows the touching moment a 40-year-old woman hears for the first time thanks to medics at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Joanne Milne – who suffers from the rare condition Usher Syndrome – was filmed by her mother as her life-changing cochlear implants were switched on by doctors. The 39-year-old, from Gateshead in the North East, became overwhelmed with emotion and burst into tears after the audiology specialist at QEHB recited the days of the week.
