About Us

Our service

We diagnose, manage and treat disorders of the ear including hearing loss, tinnitus and balance problems.

We issue hearing aids and implants, advise your and your family when you are diagnosed with hearing loss and teach communication skills. We can also give advice on protection to prevent hearing loss.

Our purpose and vision

We are here to provide high-quality healthcare to people of all ages. Our vision is to achieve the best possible outcomes for all by epitomising our Trust’s values: to be caring, safe, responsible and value each other.

Creating a positive, helpful and friendly environment before, during and after visits enables us to develop good relationships with patients and their families.

Our objectives

  • To offer a friendly, professional service
  • To deliver services in a timely way, and in partnership with others
  • To operate in a context of safety, quality and compassionate care
  • To be innovative and work to improve our services
  • To be efficient, productive and cost effective

Patient satisfaction is at the core of our service. Our staff are trained and motivated to give the best possible care. We strive to:

  • Encourage early identification, diagnosis and management of hearing loss, tinnitus and dizziness
  • Provide individual care that involves families and responds to information and psycho-social needs
  • Provide links to lip-reading classes, assistive technologies and other rehabilitation services
  • Promote inclusion and participation of people who are deaf or hard of hearing
