The number of people in need of ear and hearing healthcare services has been increasing steadily. Many GPs are no longer offering wax removal services, (BBC), and patients are left waiting for several weeks, if not months to receive the treatment they need. Patients require new ways of accessing ear and hearing health services.

Opticians play an essential role in delivering care within our communities, working alongside the NHS to provide vital eye-care services. Many opticians have longstanding relationships with people in their community and are trusted to deliver expert care to those in need. As such, opticians are perfectly positioned to expand their services into ear and hearing health.

healthcare solution in your hand.

By expanding your opticians’ services into ear and hearing healthcare you’ll be able to offer both eyesight and ear and hearing health check-ups, under one roof, all in a single appointment. Offering this service will strengthen existing customer relationships, and help attract new clientele.

There has been an incredible amount of demand. Since we started offering the service, we have had full clinics every day. We have six one-hour slots a day with the last one finishing at 4pm, so that we can catch up with dispensing. Bryan Kydd, Ashludie Pharmacy
We have traditionally been all about dispensing the medicine, and yet now we can dispense care, we can dispense health, we can dispense a better quality of life and that’s an honour to do that. The bottom line is this service is invaluable Bernadette Brown – Pharmacy Owner

The Tympa Backstory

NHS ENT Clinician, Dr Krishan Ramdoo, witnessed first-hand how difficult it is for patients to access ear and hearing health services. His desire to ‘find a better way’ led him to develop the Tympa System.
