We can provide treatment and support if you have any of these conditions:
- hearing loss
- communication problems
We can also help you with:
- hearing aids
- advice on assistive listening devices
- hearing tests
- hearing loss prevention
If you're referred to Audiology, we'll invite you in for an assessment. We’ll ask you a few questions about your hearing and any related conditions you might have. You might have to do a few different hearing tests during your appointment.
We’ll go through your options in detail and decide on the best treatment. You can read more about the different types of treatment for hearing loss here.
If you need a hearing aid, we might take an impression of your ear to make custom ear mould. You’ll come back at a later date to try your new hearing aid and make sure you’re happy with it. We’ll also show you how to use and look after your hearing aid.
You might also get invited to appointments for:
- adjusting your hearing aid
- a follow up to see how you’re getting on
- rehabilitation if you need extra support
- hearing aid repairs
If you need help with hearing aid repairs or maintenance, you can visit our open access clinic at the Cumberland Infirmary Monday to Friday, from 2pm to 4.30pm. You do not need an appointment to come to this clinic.
For help with hearing aids outside of these times, or at any of our other locations, you must make an appointment.
