Important Notice

Changes to our services

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, and preparations which we as a set of hospitals are undertaking at this time, we are taking steps to ensure patient and staff safety before attending the department for a face-to-face appointment.

We have now resumed all of our services. We ask that you contact us by telephone or email should you wish to be booked in for a face-to-face appointment.

If you cannot attend due to symptoms of COVID-19, we will ask you to contact us after 14 days at least and when you are symptom free.

We ask that you attend alone where possible. If not, you may bring a maximum of one person with you. We also ask that you arrive as close to your appointment time as possible in order to minimise the number of people in the department.

You must be wearing a mask at all times. If you do not wear a mask your Audiologist reserves the right to refuse to see you.

Batteries can still be collected from the following locations:

  • Trafford General Hospital (main entrance)
  • Altrincham Hospital (main entrance)
  • Chapel Road clinic
  • Timperley Health Centre
  • Partington Health Centre
  • Delamere Health Centre

Additional Information:

All aspects of Adult Audiology are dealt with, including hearing aid assessment, paediatric hearing problems and also more complex work for patients suffering with common balance problems or tinnitus.  We offer a complex objective diagnostic service for patients who are difficult to test and adults with learning difficulties.

Being part of Central Manchester Foundation Trust, the audiology department has excellent links with both Manchester Royal Infirmary and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital ensuring that all patients have access to specialist interventions wherever necessary.

Awards / Recognitions:

Our Head of Department Dr Greg Nassar was recently awarded the accolade of “UK Audiologist of the Year 2014” for his dedication to our paediatric hearing aid users.
