Welcome to The Rotherham Ear Care & Audiology website



Patients

Following the easing of lockdown restrictions, and observing strict guidelines, we are once again able to welcome you to our clinics at the Community Health Centre.

If your problem is that your ears are full of wax, please refer to your own GP.

If your ear problem is more serious, please telephone for an appointment on 01709 423207.  If your call is not answered, please leave your name, address, date of birth, telephone number and brief details of what is wrong on the answerphone, which will record your message. Someone will ring you back.

If your problem concerns your hearing, please telephone for an appointment on 01709 423145. The answerphone will record your message so please don't forget to leave your details and an idea of what is wrong.

Hearing aid batteries and tubing are available by post only. Please ring 01709 423145. Again, please leave your name, address, date of birth, telephone number and brief details of what you need and it will be posted to you.  We cannot supply batteries and tubing at Rotherham Community Health Centre (RCHC) so,

PLEASE do not attend RCHC to collect these items.

We will ensure that these are sent out to you.

Regretfully we took the decision to postpone the Tinnitus Conference due to take place on June 15th 2020

We are happy to tell you that we have re-booked the venue for the 22nd February 2021.  The programme is the same and we hope that you will be able to join us then.

Despite the lock-down we continue to take bookings for this and all our training 

Tinnitus Conference Programme

Tinnitus Conference Application

There is an interactive application form on the Training page where all the details of the Conference can also be found.

I think you'll agree that during this stressful period in our lives, the management of tinnitus is even more relevant,


C2hear

Take a look at the Patients' pages.  You'll see lots of references to c2hearonline.

It's a wonderful resource for patients:  lots of helpful information and interactive videos about hearing and hearing aids.
