The Primary Ear Care Centre and the Audiology Department have come together to form a comprehensive seamless service providing care for ears and hearing as part of The Rotherham Foundation Trust’s community services. We are based in a purpose-built Community Health Centre, together with many other services, in the centre of Rotherham. There is a large car park for patients and easy access from the bus and rail stations and motorways. Our address and contact details are shown below and are also available by clicking the ‘Contact Us’ button in the bar at the top of the page.
The 25 staff of the combined department provide ear care clinics in a variety of venues throughout the Rotherham area, home visits, training and education, research, advice and support for both patients and practitioners, health promotion and the sale of specialist ear care instruments. Audiologists provide clinics in both the Rotherham Community Health Centre and the Hospital in addition to outreach sessions in other venues and home visits. We also provide a new-born hearing screening service at the Hospital and hearing aid repair sessions at the Community Health Centre. A patient steering group and a Tinnitus self-help group meet regularly under our guidance.
16,000 patients currently use our integrated service – a bit different from the few hundred at the beginning, 25 years ago! Some of the current staff have worked here for over 20 years – a testament to the rewarding work and the strong team spirit which binds us.
Although good quality digital aids are available from the NHS, we also sell ‘state of the art’ hearing aids for those who wish to upgrade.These provide a definitive solution to most hearing problems. They are discreet and use the very latest technology. Buying a hearing aid from us gives you the security and rigour of the NHS, in addition to the experience and expertise of Audiologists who deal with the full range of hearing problems on a daily basis.
We also sell swim plugs, noise plugs and a range of hearing aid accessories.
Our Audiologists provide specialist services to the legal profession and companies whose employees are exposed to high levels of noise.
