Ear Care and Audiology Team Reach National Award Finals

15 Aug 2017 15:33:09

 The Trust’s Ear Care and Audiology Team has been shortlisted for a Nursing Times Award.

The team, which provides a one-stop-shop for over 55s hearing aid referrals has made it to the final rounds of the ‘Care of Older People’ category.

The integrated service is thought to be the first in the UK to enable patients to self-refer both to be seen by a nurse to remove wax or treat infection and to see an audiologist for a hearing test as part of the same appointment.

As part of the one-stop-shop service many patients are fitted with a hearing aid the same day; a process which previously could take up to six months. The team now provides a more streamlined, efficient service and is highly commended by its patients.

The team has been invited to deliver a presentation to award judges in September and if successful will attend a ceremony in November to discover if they are winners.
