Manchester Hearing Aid Group

Arrow In this section

All new Central Manchester Audiology hearing aid patients are invited to an information session to provide patients with more ideas and in-depth information on how to manage their hearing loss. It is also a good opportunity for patients to give feedback to us about our service.

There is a session held on the first Thursday of every other month.

If you received your hearing aid(s) from Central Manchester Audiology Services, and would like to join us, please contact the department by post, telephone, or email. We will then get in touch with you to confirm your place.

If you are attending the information session, it would be good if you can bring a relative or friend with you, to help them understand about how hearing loss may affect communication, and ways we can help everyone to communicate better. The group will be relatively small, to help us give you more individual attention, therefore we would appreciate it if you only brought one other person along with you to the session.

Some patient feedback about the Manchester Hearing Aid Group:

Clear and helpful, Informative and practical.
