Pennine Care provides a range of nationally accredited audiology services for children and adults living in Bury, Heywood, Middleton, Rochdale (HMR) and Oldham. Our experienced and knowledgeable NHS professionals help with hearing and balance assessments, along with support and rehabilitation for conditions such as tinnitus. We offer digital hearing aid fitting and any ongoing care people need.

  • We use top quality, modern and attractive digital hearing aids – comparable to those offered by many private hearing care providers.
  • We don’t have long waiting lists – one of our friendly and qualified hearing experts will see you within 16 days.
  • We offer a drop-in aftercare service five days a week – any problems or worries will be quickly resolved in the borough where your aid has been fitted.
  • We offer a Click and Post service – your hearing aid accessories (such as batteries and tubing) can be sent straight to your home. Click here to find out more.
  • We are a dementia friendly service – our staff have received expert training to provide the very best care for people with dementia.
  • We offer a direct link with NHS hospital services – meaning a direct referral for relevant specialist care you may need.
  • We are nationally accredited – 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.

Supporting information and 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.
