Our COVID procedures remain unchanged.

Since the pandemic started, we have all been expected to wear masks in public spaces as part of the government regulations. As a result of the vaccination roll-out, the Government made the requirement for wearing face masks in public optional from 19th July.

Our priority has always been to ensure we take measures to protect our clients and staff. We have provided more than 10,000 masks since we re-opened and gallons of hand sanitisers in our effort to provide a COVID secure environment.

To date, we have not yet had updated information from our governing bodies or the Government. Our procedures remain the same but we will provide a further update should anything change.

Sarah knits a solution!

The space behind all of our ears is limited at the best of times. If you wear glasses, add a hearing aid, then along comes the need to wear a face mask and the space behind our ears is further squeezed to an uncomfortable irritation breaking point.

Sarah had noticed this issue with people visiting the clinic and decided to use her newly exercised knitting fingers to help solve the problem. In her spare time, she’s been knitting bands to attach to face masks so that they don’t interfere with glasses and hearing aid positioning.

If you would like one of the bands please drop us an email and Sarah can get knitting. There are no charge for these for our hearing aid clients, but if you know someone who would like one and you have knitting abilities here’s the link to the pattern

Happy knitting!
