Audiology is the healthcare science profession that provides services for people with problems with their hearing or balance. We carry out hearing tests, provide advice about Tinnitus management, fit NHS hearing aids to adults and children, carry out diagnostic tests of Hearing and Balance function and provide Rehabilitation programmes for patients diagnosed with a Balance dysfunction.

Audiology is closely linked to the department of Ear, Nose and Throat surgery (ENT). We carry out hearing tests on patients attending ENT outpatient clinics and provide further tests of hearing and balance for ENT patients referred by the ENT Consultant.
