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.
New: Equipment support appointments
We are now offering short appointments to help you get the best out of your cochlear implant.
In these 15-minute appointments we can give additional support with understanding and maintaining your equipment:
- Your sound processor – Keeping it on and keeping it safe
- Changing your microphone covers and T-mic cover
- Changing your earhook
- Using your Remote Assistant, FineTuner or myPilot
- Using your wireless accessories
Please note: this is not a repair service.
The clinic will run every Friday, from 2.30pm to 4pm. To book an appointment, or for more information, telephone 0115 9485549, text 07976190003 or email email@example.com.
