News   •   Jan 20, 2016 16:16 GMT

On 1 February 2016, the borough’s hearing aid repair drop-in clinic will move premises.

The clinic will move from its current home at Fairfield General Hospital to Radcliffe Primary Care Centre, 69 Church St West, Radcliffe, M26 2SP.

There will be no change to the opening times and no appointment is needed. People can continue to drop-in between 9am and 12pm and 1pm and 4pm (the clinic is closed between 12pm and 1pm).

The clinic is provided by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Audiology Service and is for any current audiology patient who is aged over 18 and has a hearing aid. It was established to enable issues to be resolved more quickly and easily – without them having to wait for an appointment. This includes hearing aid repairs, battery replacement and advice around any problems people are having.

The new venue offers many benefits including ample free parking, excellent public transport links, disabled access and a more central location that is closer to many people’s homes. This purpose built health centre also boasts light, airy and spacious clinical rooms and a welcoming environment.

Debbie Rose, Audiology Service Lead, said: “The drop-in clinic is hugely popular and feedback from our service users tells us they really value the opportunity to resolve any issues with their hearing aid quickly and easily.

“We’re keen to make sure people know about the new venue and are using every channel available to us. If you know someone who lives in Bury and has a hearing aid, please do let them know about the changes.”

People who have any questions or concerns can phone the Audiology Team on 01706 837121. Further information about the Audiology Service is available at www.penninecare.nhs.uk/buryaudiology
