What we do

This well established department operating from modern, high quality facilities provides hearing and balance care for the local population. We provide services for testing your hearing and fitting digital hearing aids, including aural rehabilitation where appropriate.

We investigate and rehabilitate dizziness and balance problems.

We offer specialist care in tinnitus (noises in your head) and rehabilitation.

We have a specialist children's unit to look after children with hearing problems.

This well established, modern department has always been at the forefront of innovative ways of working and has been recognised by the Department of Health Action on ENT and Action on Audiology programmes. Examples of Innovation in practice includes:

•    Audiologist led grommet follow-up clinics
•    Audiologist led wax removal with micro-suction
•    Patient focus groups
