The Northern Care Alliance provides a range of nationally accredited audiology services for children and adults living in Bury, Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale (HMR) and Oldham. Our experienced and knowledgeable NHS professionals help with hearing and balance assessments (adults), along with support and rehabilitation for conditions such as tinnitus. We offer digital hearing aid fitting and any ongoing care people need.

  • We are nationally accredited – our audiology services have received a national seal of approval from the prestigious United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). In 2014, we were one of the first in the country to achieve this. Click here to find out more about UKAS accreditation.
  • We don’t have long waiting lists – one of our friendly and qualified hearing experts will see you.
  • We offer a direct link with NHS hospital services – meaning a direct referral for relevant specialist care you may need.
  • We are a dementia friendly service – our staff have received expert training to provide the very best care for people with dementia.
  • We use top quality, modern and attractive digital hearing aids – comparable to those offered by many private hearing care providers.
  • We offer a Click and Post service – your hearing aid accessories (such as batteries and tubing) can be sent straight to your home. Click here to find out more.

Supporting information and resources

Our audiology teams want to make sure that you know what to expect when you are invited for a hearing assessment or for another procedure.

Following a diagnosis, it’s also important that you understand the condition and have easy access to advice on how you can manage it.

You can now follow the Audiology service on Facebook: Audiology
