More About us

Summertown Audiology was set up by Sam Godkin in 2022.  This does not mean though we’re new at Audiology! Sam has been in Audiology since 1994.

You can read more about Sam in the blog linked in the Meet the Team Section.

Having worked for some of the biggest hearing aid suppliers on the high street and for the NHS.  Sam still felt there was a more fulfilling, holistic one-to-one patient-centered, and independent clinic model out there.

Having worked at the Summertown Clinic for 2 years for another larger company she felt that she couldn’t be true to herself so something had to change.

James Ruddick, Summertown Clinic Owner stepped in and became her ‘dragon mentor’.  He helped get the business plan researched and written and was tremendous support in setting up the business.

Now Summertown Audiology is part of an amazing collective of passionate and highly skilled, trained, and experienced clinicians working under one roof. You can read more about this by following the Summertown Clinic link in the Other Services Section on the Home page.

However, this is what we believe.

We are passionate about the need for regular Ear Health Checks and regular Hearing screenings.  Just like going to the optician and dentist, this should be a normal part of one’s health care routine.  We recommend that after the age of 40 people should have an ear health check and screening test every 5 years and after 60 this should be every 2 years.  (of course if in between there are any issues seeking help is always recommended)

Part of looking after your hearing is protecting it.  Stopping noise damage is one of the easiest things you can do to help yourself. So at Summertown Audiology we can advise on and provide hearing protection.  Both passive filtered and electronic noise canceling.  We provide custom-made and over- for everything from under a crash helmet to electronic ear defenders for shooting.

We can also provide swimming moulds and sleep moulds.

We work with the best in the business and have access not only to the latest hearing aid technology but also to the latest custom-made headphones and in-ear monitors for musicians.

We are able to refer to the best Private ENT consultants in Oxfordshire and surrounding regions if medically needed.  We have connections in London for specialist Vestibular Physiotherapy and Paediatric Audiologists. We can also recommend Private GP services in Oxford and London.
