I had a unique experience today taking a friend to the Auditory Clinic at Tameside Hospital and being invited to be there. The young nurse Elaine, who welcomed us, was on time, and welcomed my friend and I with courtesy and openness about the examination that was to take place. It was explained in details anyone could have understood and she carried out the examination efficiently with concern for the feelings of her patient.
Moderate hearing loss was explained and the best options for my friend given to her so that she could make an informed choice on what she wanted from the outcome.
I have the same problems with hearing and felt that when I need to get an appointment I will know enough about the whole procedure and would not hesitate to go to Tameside Hospital.
