Ellen Giles MSc

Hearing Therapist
The Hearing House

Ellen Giles has worked in the field of cochlear implantation for 30 years.  Ellen is based at The Hearing House, supporting the Northern Cochlear Implant Programme for adults. She has a strong interest in the rehabilitation of adults to ensure they obtain maximum gain in hearing with their cochlear implants.  The “take-home” message from Ellen’s presentation will be that the benefits of cochlear implants impact mental health and quality of life, which is important for all cochlear implant recipients - especially for those enjoying their retirement.  Cochlear implants have been shown to be cost effective - however, penetration of cochlear implants in eligible adults is as low as 5% .
