Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

As part of contingency planning to manage the Covid-19 outbreak, it has been necessary to cancel ALL Audiology appointments with immediate effect and until further notice. If you were scheduled to attend an Audiology or Hearing Aid Clinic appointment in the coming weeks our Departments will be making contact with you about this.

Most departments are still offering hearing aid repairs and batteries by post - please DO NOT ATTEND THE DEPARTMENTS - post in & we'll post back!

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience to you. We will reschedule your appointment or advise of alternative arrangements as soon as we can.

Take care, The Audiology Team NHS GG&C.

 

Welcome to the NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Audiology Service.

Our service includes a range of services for the assessment, treatment, and ongoing management of hearing and balance disorders. We provide services for adults across the Glasgow and Clyde health board area.

The term Audiology refers to the science of hearing.

A much broader definition of Audiology is the discipline involved in the prevention and identification of hearing impairment; which includes evaluation of hearing disorders, the selection and evaluation of hearing aids and the rehabilitation of individuals with hearing impairment.

Our team provides a comprehensive range of services; please note that not all sites provide all services:

To be referred to NHS Audiology you will need to:

Visit your GP practice and request that your GP sends us a referral, if appropriate.

If you already wear a hearing aid issued by NHSGGC you may be able to self-refer into the Service, so please contact your local Audiology Department.

Please ensure your ears are free from wax prior to attending any Audiology appointment
