Welcome to our site


Now tablet and smart phone friendly!

You will find that using Google Chrome instead of Internet Explore on your PC to view this website improves the appearance and accessibility.  However, if you having difficulty reading this page please email us on earcarecentre@rothgen.nhs.uk with details of what appears to be wrong, the device and the browser you are using.  We can then ask our web people to correct the problem.

We hope you’ll find it easy to use and will like the modern 'look', the more up-to-date information and the new pages. You’ll see that we have divided it into 2 main sections – one for Healthcare Professionals and one for patients. Some pages will be the same for everyone but most have been written specifically for you, whether patient or practitioner.

We want to use this website as a way of communicating with all interested groups, making available information about the services we provide, the equipment we sell, with downloadable leaflets, protocols and other information.

If you have any problems finding what you want, or any suggestions about the content, please let us know. You'll find our contact details at the bottom of the page or just click the ‘Contact Us’ button in the bar at the top of the page.

To access your own particular section please use the buttons at the top of the page.

Congratulations to the Ear Care Centre – 25 years old this year!
