We assess, diagnose and treat hearing and balance problems in children and adults and provide information, support and counselling to people who use NHS hearing aids. We also fit and repair NHS digital hearing aids.
Most of our patients are referred to us from their GP or an ear, nose and throat consultant. If you or someone close to you has hearing or balance difficulties, book an appointment with your GP and they can then refer you to our service for further tests and support.
We are based at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton but we also run community clinics across Somerset including Bridgwater, Burnham on Sea, Chard, Glastonbury and Minehead. Our team includes audiologists and a hearing therapist and we are committed to providing high-quality, personalised care.
There is high demand for our service so you may have to wait some time for an appointment with us. You may need to wait up to six weeks for your first appointment after being referred by your GP. Waiting times for fittings, retunes, mould fits and other aftercare are at least 24 weeks. We are sorry for any inconvenience these delays cause and we will do all we can to see you as soon as possible.
