YAIS/Cochlear Implants Outreach Service
We provide a service that covers a wide geographical area and we appreciate that many of our adult patients commit to travelling considerable distances to attend appointments at the Listening for Life Centre.
In line with NHS England recommendations and in order to offer expert support locally, we have established outreach services based both at Barnsley Hospital and in Hull. Our own experienced and qualified staff travel to these locations to provide support for established cochlear implant users.
These sessions are held frequently and consist of annual review appointments, a spares and repairs service and Patient Support Group meetings. Alongside the audiology session, this informal meeting enables cochlear implant users and their families to meet others and share experiences.
