LivingCare Health Services has appointed a family-run opticians and hearing care specialist to provide Adult NHS hearing care services from their four branches in Leeds, as well as the Thorpe Park Clinic and Parkside Community Health Centre.
The partnership with Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care will enable patients referred by their GP to LivingCare Health Services to access free NHS hearing assessments, hearing aids and all aftercare, including batteries, in convenient High Street locations.
Scrivens branches at Town Street – Horsforth, Otley Road – Headingley, Penny Hill Centre – Hunslet and Town Square – Beeston, will provide the service for people aged 19 and over.
Director Mark Georgevic from Scrivens said: “LivingCare Health Services have been providing NHS services to patients within the Leeds and West Yorkshire area for 17 years. We are delighted LivingCare Health Services has chosen us to give patients a wider choice of venues where they can benefit from NHS funded hearing care services.
“We are long established in Leeds and our well trained and experienced branch teams look forward to helping more people to access the services they need.”
LivingCare Health Services currently runs hearing clinics from Thorpe Park Clinic in Colton and Parkside Community Health Centre, Beeston. The LivingCare NHS Adult Hearing clinics are run alongside a consultant-led Ear, Nose and Throat Service.
Commercial manager Emma Shenton of LivingCare said: “Our partnership with Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care has proved to be an excellent addition to our list of patient services. Our patients are delighted with the service, short waiting times and the choice of sites available to them.”
