Our other clinics around the country are open, so please contact us to find out when the earliest appointment at your preferred clinic will be.
During appointments, our clinicians use appropriate sanitising equipment and PPE (personal protective equipment) which is also available to patients. We also clean surfaces between patient appointments in line with Government guidance and that issued by the British Society of Audiology.
We will require you to answer a few questions before you come into clinic to minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19 infection.
Remember, if you're unable to attend a clinic we run a full telecare service with remote assessments and fittings using video through our e‑consult service.
While many veterans can use devices and treatments which are available from the National Health Service, for others a more specialist expert approach is needed.
Whether you are 25 or 85 or whether you served in the Army, Navy or Air Force, we can help you with specialist treatment for tinnitus, hyperacusis and noise induced hearing loss.
You may be eligible to claim funding from The Royal British Legion's Veterans Hearing Fund (VHF) even if you have already received compensation for tinnitus or hearing loss from the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme Award or, are receiving a War Pension.
More information including the eligibility criteria and application form can be found on The Royal British Legion's Website or call the Royal British Legion contact centre on 0808 802 8080 for a form to be posted out to you.
If you have difficulty with the forms then either contact the Royal British Legion contact centre or phone SSAFA on 0800 731 4880 who may be able to provide a case worker to support you in your application.
Once your eligibility has been approved, our specialist audiologist team will undertake an initial assessment with you. During this extensive assessment, lasting 1 ½ hours, our expert audiologists will review your relevant medical history and perform a range of diagnostic tests to assess your tinnitus and audiological profile. These tests are designed to diagnose your tinnitus type, pinpoint your tinnitus tone and identify any associated hearing loss that may be making your condition more difficult for you.
We will provide a written quotation for you to send to Royal British Legion for their approval. Once this is in place we can start your treatment and get you on the road to recovery and a better quality of life.
