Audiology Education booking
Specsavers has launched a practice-level GP education programme to better inform GPs about age-related hearing loss and the outcomes being achieved in the community. Our local clinical leads are on hand to offer a 30-minute, locally-tailored, practice-level education session for GPs, practice managers, nurses and administrative staff.
Since the programme was launched, more than 3,500 GPs have undertaken the Audiology Education training within their practice.
