‚ÄčWhat is Audiology?

Audiologists are healthcare professionals who identify, assess, and manage disorders of hearing and balance. Our department provides a comprehensive adults and children service situated in several sites across Cardiff & Vale. 

 

How to access our service

For new patients who suspect they may have a hearing loss or are struggling with tinnitus you will need to contact your GP for a referral to your Audiology department. We will also accept referrals from other Health Professionals within the hospital. 

Once you have been issued a hearing aid you can access our services directly, you do not need a repeat referral from your GP for hearing tests or for any repairs of your hearing aid. 

Repairs of your hearing aid should be done on a regular basis (every 6 months) and repeat hearing tests should be performed every 3 years. Please contact us directly to arrange a repeat hearing test every 3 years. 

Our contact details:  02921 843179 or 07805670359 (text only) or email Audiology.helpline.CAV@wales.nhs.uk
