Nottingham Auditory Implant Programme

The Nottingham Auditory Implant Programme was established in 1989. We provided the first child with a cochlear implant in the UK.

We have now carried out over 1,700 implant operations and are one of the leaders in the field, receiving nation-wide referrals. We have a national and international reputation for excellence.

Cochlear implantation requires a unique combination of technology, skills and long-term support which is provided by our multi-disciplinary team. Our facilities offer up-to-date medical and scientific techniques. Support and resources are delivered by highly experienced staff and we provide lifelong support for our patients throughout the UK.
