Tinnitus Conference

June 15th 2020 at the Source Conference Centre, Meadowhall, Sheffield


As you will be aware, we at the Rotherham NHS Ear Care & Audiology Service, are heavily invested in the training of nurses, audiologists and other healthcare professionals in the field of ear health and hearing, to a nationally recognised standard.

To that end we have put together a programme on the subject of Tinnitus Management in the form of a one-day Conference, presented by well-known experts in the field.  It is aimed at healthcare professionals working in the field of, or with an interest in, tinnitus management: anyone who sees patients with tinnitus or just wants to know more. 

Our programme gives you the opportunity to participate in an in-depth study of tinnitus which is relevant for everyone. It covers a wide range of topics - there’s something for everyone whatever their level of expertise.

The programme includes lectures by nationally and internationally renowned speakers, breakout sessions and an exhibition by relevant suppliers and other bodies - and the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals 

Speakers include Dr Magdalena Sereda of Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre, Dr James Jackson, Associate Principal Lecturer in Psychology, Leeds Trinity University, and Claire Benton, paediatric audiologist and Head of Audiology at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust.

Mentorship 

We are now providing mentorship to those people who have studied with us and find it difficult to access a mentor in their place of work.

One of our highly-trained nurses can come to you for either a 4 hour or 8 hour session. Please see the Training page for more details.



Please make a note of our new email address:

You can contact us with enquiries, requests for information or applications for courses.


We are revamping some of our Microsuction courses

and introducing a new course for clinicians and audiologists combining microsuction and irrigation so keep checking the website for news.

As a consequence, the course on mould taking has been delayed. It will be for audiological technicians and others who take hearing aid moulds. 

Please bear with us - it will be available soon.
