05 October 2012 at 13:49
The audiology service at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust has launched new clinics to help patients access expert services at times to suit them.

Patients requiring follow-up appointments can now be seen at Formby Clinic every Thursday between 9am and 12 Noon and in Skelmersdale at Sandy Lane Clinic every Tuesday between 1pm and 5pm. New and follow-up patients can also be seen at Southport or Ormskirk hospital every Saturday between 8am and 1pm.

“We want to make sure our services are easily accessible for all our patients. It was them who told us they wanted more services closer to home and at more flexible times.” said Audiology Manager, Francis Williams.

The audiology team at Southport and Ormskirk have been providing services for patients in north Sefton and West Lancashire for over 20 years. The 12 audiologists have over 160 years’ experience between them and have specialist knowledge in a range of adult and child conditions including tinnitus, vertigo and complex hearing needs.

Patients who visit the team at either hospital will be seen a purpose built audiology suite with five large soundproof rooms. State-of-the-art equipment is used to provide real ear measurements and ensure hearing aids completely match a patient’s hearing needs.

Francis continues: “We pride ourselves on offering a quality, friendly service to all our patients time and time again and I look forward to welcoming new and returning patients to our new clinics.”
