Independent optometry practice, Bateman Opticians, joins the THCP family as of today, Tuesday 26th March 2019. Located in the Valleys of Wales, their Blackwood practice will now be offering our full hearing services. This includes free hearing assessments, free tinnitus consultations, the latest hearing aids, ear wax removal and hearing protection services.
Bateman Opticians, previously known as Peter Hong Opticians, has been established for over 30 years, providing exceptional eye care to the community of Blackwood. Current Director and Optometrist, Elliot Bateman, has worked at the practice since 2013, taking over from the previous owner, Peter, in early 2015.
Founded in 1985, the practice as a whole has gained exceptional experience in offering high quality services to patients, with the current team devoted to offering a traditional and professional service to all. Elliot is keen to continuously develop the Blackwood practice, making it the best it can be for all its patients. With technology ever-changing over the years in line with the latest developments, keeping up with this and investing in the latest equipment is important to the team.
With shared values in personalised and patient-centred care, working with the Bateman team was a no-brainer. Our expert audiologist Imogen Morgan will be delivering our hearing care services in the Blackwood practice, helping to integrate audiology into their optical business.
Imogen graduated from De Montford University in 2010, having previously worked in the private sector as an audiologist in various parts of England and Wales for six years. Imogen then moved on to working for the NHS in Bristol, building on her knowledge of how the NHS deal with hearing loss. Throughout her career, Imogen has gained a lot of experience in working closely with patients, to offer them the very best in clinical care.
Imogen commented below on why she wanted to join THCP:
“I had been looking for a company that enables me to use all my skills to individually help each patient, and I’ve found that in The Hearing Care Partnership. With access to the best there is in hearing technology, for both testing a patient's hearing and enhancing a patient’s hearing, I am able to offer every patient the best possible solution for their hearing loss and provide them with continued lifetime aftercare.”
With Bateman Opticians’ passion and drive, alongside our high quality patient-centred hearing care, we know that them joining THCP will be a success and help to build on offering more people throughout the UK with expert hearing and eye care. We’re excited to work with their friendly and welcoming team and look forward to the future of providing a fully centralised and integrated hearing and optical service.
