Visiting Audiologist, Sean McCann arrived at St Helena on Saturday, 13 January 2018. Sean, who last visited the Island in November 2016, is here for four weeks providing an Audiology Service to the people of St Helena.
As an Audiologist, Sean diagnoses and treats people with hearing, balance and tinnitus problems � this can be either through self-referrals or referrals from GPs or Doctors.
I hope to service everyone that has had a hearing aid from me in the past. Tubing will need to be replaced and the hearing aid might need to be fine-tuned. You still need to see me for a service even if you're happy with your device. I haven't been back on St Helena in over a year so it's definitely required for the maintenance of your hearing aid. They can last several years if maintained correctly.
I look forward to working closely with Community Nurse Diana Stroud again.
Director of Health, Dr Akeem Ali added:
Sean's visit is an essential part of ensuring that continuing specialist care is provided in a sustainable manner on the Island. We expect to build positively on his previous visit and he will be seeing many new and follow-up patients.
Sean will depart the Island on Sunday, 11 February 2018.
