How We Can Provide The Service

We can operate a full NHS hearing service from within your surgery, enabling you to extend the range of healthcare services you offer your patients. Having a fully qualified Hearing Aid Audiologist on-site will give your patients direct access to this service in a convenient and familiar location.

To provide this service, all we need is regular access to a suitable consulting room which we will rent from you at an agreed rate. We can offer this service on a fully flexible basis to match both the needs of your practice and your patients, and we will work with you to agree the best way forward.

You can refer your patients directly to one of our Scrivens Hearing Care branches, where our team will arrange the service at the patient’s convenience.

Our Hearing Aid Audiologist will then carry out the assessment and fitting in our purpose built consulting rooms. The patient can also attend their local branch for all aftercare and any additional assistance required. As our branches are open six days a week, we can offer them a truly flexible service to meet the individual needs of each patient, along with meeting their NHS eyecare needs for added convenience.

You can refer your patients using the Choose and Book system. How to find our details on Choose and Book is shown below:

  • Speciality – Diagnostic physiological measurement
  • Clinic type – Audiology
  • Organisation and site name search – Scrivens

Alternatively, we can accept referral letters delivered to our branches either by mail, fax or by hand from the patient.

The information we require from you on the referral is:

  • Patient’s full name, address and date of birth
  • The patient’s NHS number
  • Details of the referring GP and the medical centre /surgery
  • Confirmation that the patient’s ears are free of wax

Once you have referred a patient, we will provide you with post assessment information for your records and we will keep you updated on your patient’s ongoing progress following any aftercare.
