The Adult Audiology Department specialises in assessing, diagnosing and treating hearing and balance problems. Our highly skilled team of audiologists use a range of tests to assess hearing and can fit hearing aids for patients as necessary. We also provide therapies and counselling for tinnitus (noises in the ears), balance tests and rehabilitation. We have excellent levels of patient satisfaction because of our high quality, patient centred care.
The Audiology staff work closely with the Ear, Nose and Throat department, who investigate, diagnose and treat hearing and balance disorders. Our main audiology base is at King's Mill Hospital, where we provide hearing and middle ear function tests for patients who have appointments with ENT. Further tests can be provided to help the diagnosis and to decide on suitable rehabilitation.
