Audiology

About us

We provide audiology services to adults and children and we aim to - 

    1. Assist in the identification and diagnosis of hearing loss.
    2. Understand living with hearing loss, tinnitus and/or hyperacusis from the perspective of the patient and their family.
    3. Help the patient minimise as far as possible the activity limitations and participation restrictions that may result from hearing loss, tinnitus or hyperacusis.

What we offer

We perform and interpret hearing tests.    

We advise on hearing aids and other interventions for hearing loss, tinnitus or hyperacusis.

We fit, repair and maintain hearing aids.

We can refer to and liaise with other medical and non-medical professionals (e.g. Ear nose and throat, paediatrician, speech & language therapist, education support service, sensory advice and resource centre).

Access and referrals

Adults: A GP referral is required for a hearing test or hearing aid assessment, please note that direct referral criteria apply. Self referrals are accepted for ongoing help with hearing aids for patients who have been fitted with a hearing aid from our service. Referrals for tinnitus from ear nose and throat consultants only.

Children: Referrals for hearing tests are accepted from GPs, school nurses, health visitors and paediatricians.
