Audiology

Adult Audiology procedures during the Covid-19 pandemic

UPDATE: 

Our Trust guidelines state that staff and patients must wear a face mask in the hospital unless they are exempt for medical reasons.

We are now performing some appointments via video. Please check your appointment letter carefully as the appointment can be by Phone, Face to Face, or Video. Find out more in the Video Clinics section of the Trusts website. 

Please be aware that Adult Audiology provides essential urgent repairs to existing patient's hearing aids by postal and booked appointments.

To book an appointment or arrange a hearing aid repair, please contact us on: 0117 342 5854 (option 2 only) or Email: Audiology.dept@uhbw.nhs.uk

Please also view the videos we have on this website which give clear instructions on cleaning and inserting hearing aids. Or check the c2Hear online videos https://c2hearonline.com/

We would like to bring to your notice, the Transcribe Live mobile application, which instantly transcribes spoken words into text. Available on the Google Play Store and the IOS App Store, this can be a very useful tool to aid communication.

When you attend for some appointments we do need to know if you have any medically implanted devices, i.e. Programmable PVP Shunt, Pacemaker or defibrillator - as this may impact on how some appointments are carried out.  Please check on https://www.shinecharity.org.uk/ for more information on PVP shunts.
