Welcome to the Bristol Hearing & Balance Service. We provide a fully modernised diagnostic and rehabilitation service for people with hearing and balance disorders. This includes:

  • Comprehensive hearing assessments and digital hearing aid fittings for adults (aged 16+)
  • Comprehensive diagnostic investigations and balance assessments for adults and children
  • Hearing and tinnitus therapy for adults
  • Balance (vestibular) rehabilitation for adults and children
  • Maintenance and repair of hearing aids

NHS services in north and central Bristol merged in March 2013 and we are now proud to be one of the largest audiology departments in the UK. Our main centres are based at St Michael's Hospital and Southmead Hospital (Gate 36, Level 1, Brunel building), where all the above services can be found. We also have a number of satellite clinics that offer hearing assessments, hearing aid fittings, hearing aid repairs and hearing therapy.

We are also a local, regional and national training centre for Audiologists, Associate Audiologists and Clinical Scientists and have established links with ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) and Auditory Implant (eg Cochlear Implant and Bone anchored hearing aid) services.
