Audiology services

About our audiology services

Pennine Care provides a range of nationally accredited (*) audiology services for children and adults living in Bury, Heywood, Middleton, Rochdale (HMR) and Oldham.

This includes hearing and balance assessments, along with support and rehabilitation for conditions such as tinnitus.

Our experienced and knowledgeable NHS professionals offer digital hearing aid fitting and any ongoing care people need.

We are committed to keeping abreast of the latest developments and best practice in relation to high quality, digital hearing aids.

Hearing aid drop-in clinics are available for existing patients, where you can quickly and easily have your hearing aid battery replaced or speak to a member of the team about any problems you are having. Please note, it is only possible to attend the drop in sessions in the borough where your aid has been fitted.

Clinic appointments are offered at a number of locations in each borough, to make it as easy as possible for you to access the care you need. Home visits are also offered to people who are housebound.

(*) Our audiology services have received a national seal of approval from the prestigious United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). In 2014, we were one of the first in the country to achieve this. Click here to find out more about UKAS accreditation.

Find out more: support and advice resources

Our audiology teams want to make sure that you know what to expect when you are invited for a hearing assessment or for another procedure.

Following a diagnosis, it’s also important that you understand the condition and have easy access to advice on how you can manage it.

There is lots and advice, support and information on the Trust's health and wellbeing self-help website - called My Health My Community.  This includes guidance around hearing loss, advice around hearing aid maintenance and patient stories.  Click here to visit the site.

You may also wish to view the resources on the C2Hear Youtube channel. C2Hear Online is a series of short, interactive, multimedia videos about hearing aids, hearing loss and communication.
