This is an anxious time for all of us, but we are working very hard to maintain a service for you, our patients, despite the restrictions.

If you need to ring us, your call may go directly to an ansaphone.  Please DO LEAVE A MESSAGE. Please speak clearly leaving your name, date of birth, telephone number and brief details of the reason for your call. SOMEONE WILL CALL YOU BACK.

The numbers to ring are 01709 423207 or 423145.

If you prefer to email the address is  rgh-tr.earcarecentre@nhs.net

We are able to post batteries and tubing to you and our staff are able to talk you through how to insert the tubing and batteries into your hearing aid.  We already have many satisfied 'customers' who have learned how to look after their aids in this way! 

We are all learning new ways of doing things in these strange times.

How about learning how to re-tube your hearing aid?  Have a look at an excellent video, made by one of your Audiologists. Please click below

Comments


A few of the comments about our service received recently:

The ear care centre is amazing. Rotherham should be proud to have a very welcoming, kind and polite receptionist. Rotherham should also be proud to have a centre of excellence run by highly trained nurses. Great staff. 

Friendly and helpful staff, very happy with the location glad it is still at the old walk in centre

The Audiologist and staff member issuing the hearing aids were both extremely knowledgeable, courteous and patient and made the experience easier than anticipated. Their friendly approach put me at ease and this makes a big difference 

First class service

The service was quick, attentive, efficient and friendly

Given a full ear test, explained very well to me with good advise and follow up treatment to improve my hearing

Consistently excellent - Today was the same experience that I have come to expect from my attendances at Primary Ear Care Service. Professional, friendly and very good care from all in the team

I feel very honoured to have been seen by such lovely kind and generous people

I would not go anywhere else

I really would not know what to do if your service didn't exist

Very impressed with the service

Excellent and reliable as always !
