Hearing care specialists Correct Hearing have reassured people in Grantham that their clinic in The George Centre is open and they remain committed to the town, despite the future of the Grade II listed shopping centre currently being uncertain.
Correct Hearing – which last year celebrated the 10th anniversary of their practice in Carlton, Nottingham – opened their practice in Grantham at the end of February to provide independent hearing, tinnitus and wax removal services for local people.
The effects of the pandemic have seen a number of restaurants and businesses unfortunately closing their doors in The George Centre in the last few months. And the shopping centre is now set to be sold at auction later this month with a guide price of £950,000, meaning its future is uncertain.
However, Correct Hearing have assured people in Grantham that they are open and committed to providing independent hearing care for the community.
Sarah Vokes, Correct Hearing audiologist and director, says: “We’re desperately sorry for the businesses that have been forced to close, and to see The George Centre struggling. We hope that a new owner can work to make it a viable shopping and leisure destination in the town. It has huge potential. Whatever the future holds for The George Centre, we’re committed to the Grantham community, whether we’re based in The George Centre or, in the future, elsewhere in the town.”
Correct Hearing’s Grantham practice is remaining open during the second national lockdown and in any return to tiered Covid restrictions. Sarah has urged people in Grantham not to put their hearing care on hold because of Covid-19.
She said: “The Government has classified community hearing practices like Correct Hearing as an essential service. We have been open for the community throughout this terrible pandemic, delivering remote services where possible but, if required, seeing people in our clinic with the highest levels of infection control, PPE and patient management in place to keep everyone safe, and following Government guidance and advice from our professional body to the letter.
”I urge people in Grantham not to suffer in silence by neglecting their hearing care. We’re here to help.”
