Leon Cox Msc RHAD

Leon Cox_AudiologistLeon Cox has worked in the field of Audiology for over 8 years. He attended the prestigious University College London, where he obtained his Masters Degree in Audiological Science and completed his thesis discussing the generation sites of Tinnitus. He has also trained alongside some of the country’s leading Audiologists and ENT doctors. Leon’s passion for Audiology alongside his nature to help others, coincide to create a caring professional, who delivers only the best in audiological practices. He now applies his extensive knowledge and understanding to caring for his patients across our Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire sites. Since becoming a Registered Audiologist in 2007, Leon has worked for a large national hearing company, as well as worked with a number of NHS hospitals.  Prior to becoming an Audiologist and Director at Chalfont Hearing Centre, Leon was a Regional Manager and Audiologist for one of the world ‘s leading hearing aid manufacturers, Phonak-Unitron. During this role he built up an extensive knowledge of hearing aid technology and patient requirements.

Leon is one of the only private Audiologist locally who has an Audiology Masters, HCPC registration, CEC Ear Care Certification (ear wax removal) and have Consultant Approved Accreditation.

In 2012, in order to raise awareness of Audiology and raise funds for the Children’s Audiology department at Great Ormond Street Hospital, Leon cycled solo and unsupported across the USA. He cycled 2500 miles on a bicycle through mountains, cities and deserts from Los Angeles to New York in 4 weeks, raising £2500. For pictures and a diary of Leon’s trip visit his blog at Unitronbikeride.wordpress.com

In light of the latest lockdown restrictions in the UK we are changing the way will be providing hearing aid and ear wax removal services until further notice. Given the current infection rates locally we are limiting all face-to-face contact to by-appointment only.

There is a social responsibility for us all to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary, until at very least the end of January. Please do not attend the clinic without an appointment or without contacting us prior to attending, emergency appointments will only be provided once we have triaged your need by phone.

Where we deem it an emergency, we will assign you a specific appointment time, any bookings will need to be paid for prior to attendance. Subsequently any cancellations are subject to our 72-hour cancellation policy.

Appointment times have been further lengthened in order to allow us time to complete our additional safety procedures. We have introduced the use of fogging equipment between appointments in order to disinfect all surfaces and air completely, to ensure the maximum safety for our patients and staff. Emergency wax removal appointments are therefore subject to a temporary price increase to take into account the additional safety measures required due to the aerosol generating nature of microsuction equipment.
