The Chesterfield Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Adult Audiology Department provides a comprehensive service for adults with hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders.
The Audiology department is based at Chesterfield Royal Hospital; however, we also cover a large area across North Derbyshire and regularly visit several community clinics.
The dedicated Audiology team consists of Audiologists, Assistant Technical Officers, a Clinical Scientist, Hearing Therapists, Audiology Co-ordinators, and Receptionists. We are also a teaching and training centre for Student Audiologists.
Audiology services include:
Diagnostic hearing tests
Advice on communication strategies
Top of the range NHS hearing aids
Ongoing support and follow up care
Tinnitus specialist service
Balance specialist service
The caring, professional team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in performing assessments and providing treatment, rehabilitation, and practical advice to meet each individual's specific needs.
In November 2019, the department re-achieved 'Quality in Physiological Services' (IQIPS) accreditation. This recognition is awarded to Audiology services that demonstrate the highest quality care for patients undergoing assessment and treatment.
