Audiology Department Coronavirus Information

Updated 17th July 2020

The department has started a phased return of service for patients requiring appointments or home visits.

Unfortunately all our out-reach clinics across Bolton remain closed at present.

Please be assured we will do our best to continue to support our patients as best we can.

Our repair service is open but by appointment only, we request that patients in need of a repair or support contact the department in the following ways for further advice:

  • Telephone 01204 390435

We continue to urge all our patients to follow the latest Government advice.

There is now a dedicated NHS 111 service available 24 hours a day for deaf people who use BSL.
