A service for adults and children. We perform and interpret hearing tests; we can refer to and liaise with other medical and non-medical professionals (e.g. ENT, Paediatrician, Speech & Language Therapist, Education Support Service, Sensory Advice and Resource Centre). We advise on hearing aids and other interventions for hearing loss, tinnitus or hyperacusis. We fit, repair and maintain hearing aids.
Audiology Services provide a service to adults and children; we aim to assist in the identification and diagnosis of hearing loss, to understand living with hearing loss, tinnitus and/or hyperacusis from the perspective of the patient and their family. To help the patient minimise as far as possible the activity limitations and participation restrictions that may result from hearing loss, tinnitus or hyperacusis.
For those who find appointments at the hospital difficult, we have a special pathway focusing on the needs of the individual. This can include a pre-appointment phone consultation with the audiologist, and a pre-appointment familiarisation visit. Please contact us if you would like any further information on this.
