What is the service?

The Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust Audiology Service provides a comprehensive service for adults and children for hearing and balance conditions.


Services are provided at five sites throughout the district so patients are seen locally whenever possible.  Most patients can be referred directly to the Audiology Service; however, more complex conditions will need to be referred to the Ear, Nose and Throat Service initially.


Our polite and friendly staff have the appropriate training and a wealth of knowledge and experience to assess and advise you of the optimal care pathway to meet your individual needs. You can be confident we have the patient’s well being and satisfaction at the core of everything we do.


Our Audiology department is a training centre for student Audiologists from the University of Leeds. The students gain valuable learning and experience from this centre and may be involved with your care. Audiology students always work under the direct/in-direct supervision of a qualified Audiologist. If you would prefer not to have an Audiology student involved in your care please let us know well in advance of your appointment.
