We are pleased to announce the opening of two new THCP clinics, in partnership with Alex Gage Family Optometrists. Both practices, located in Woodseats and Crosspool, will be now providing range of hearing care services for the people of Sheffield.

Alex Gage Family Optometrists have been providing eye care services since first opening their doors in 1996, and take a lot of pride in their ability to deliver a wide range of affordable vision services for the whole family.

The teams at Alex Gage Optometrists are well equipped with a wealth of knowledge, built up from many years working within the optical industry. In addition to their routine eye care services, they also offer many specialist services including colorimetry and behavioural optometry, and have invested in some of the latest eye care technologies, including OCT.

Both practice teams are on hand to offer you tailored advice for all your individual eye care needs. Their sites also offer on-site glazing, which means that some glasses can be turned around in as little as an hour.

Supporting the Alex Gage teams across both locations will be THCP audiologist Faisal Imran, who will be delivering a range of hearing care services, including:

  • FREE hearing Assessments
  • Hearing aids
  • Ear wax removal
  • Tinnitus consultations
  • Hearing protection
Faisal Imran

Faisal began his career working in the NHS at his local hospital, as part of his training placement for his BSc degree in Healthcare Science. From the very beginning, Faisal started building his knowledge and experience in everything from hearing aid repairs to patient care. He worked so hard that the hospital’s Lead Audiologist offered him a full time role just eight weeks into his training, which was previously unheard of for students on his degree course. Upon his graduation, Faisal was also awarded “Student Placement of the Year” to recognise his contributions to the hospital.

After completing his degree, Faisal then spent a further year working for the NHS, enjoying his time with both the patients and staff, before deciding to join The Hearing Care Partnership.

“One of the main reasons I decided to take a leap of faith and join THCP was the equipment, and the technology of the hearing aids at my disposal. I always felt that with the NHS we were somewhat restricted, but with THCP, we’re able to work with any manufacturer and use any hearing aid, which gives me all the tools I need to provide the best possible service to all my patients, and really make a difference to their lives!

"Since joining THCP, I’ve loved every moment of my job. All my colleagues are the friendliest people I’ve met; they really care about the patients but they care about the staff too. It’s fantastic coming from the NHS where patient-centred care was important, but THCP carries these same values even further to really provide tailored personalised care.”
