Due to the COVID-19 situation all routine appointments are cancelled for the foreseeable future.

However, if you require spares or repairs please phone, text or email on yais.helpline@bthft.nhs.uk and we will endeavor to help. Medical emergencies remain the same; ring the main YAIS number and we will help. There is information for an out of hours service on this number also.


The Yorkshire Cochlear Implant Service (YCIS) was established at the Bradford Royal Infirmary in 1990.

YCIS has developed nationally recognised programmes for assessing children and adults with severe to profound hearing loss. To date we have successfully completed nearly 900 adult and paediatric cochlear implants.

YCIS is committed to providing a caring and quality service for patients and their families. Also to expand its service to support patients requiring other implantable devices.
