Balance & Tinnitus service


@ The Ear Foundation

Hearing, Balance and Tinnitus

Do you have difficulty hearing friends and family? Do you have tinnitus? Do you have dizzy spells or poor balance? We can help whatever your combination of hearing, balance and tinnitus needs.


Tinnitus and hyperacusis service

Tinnitus is very common, affecting different people in different ways; we are here to provide you with the help and support you need to effectively manage your tinnitus. While there is no ‘cure’ for tinnitus there are plenty of proven methods of management that do significantly help in our experience. It is important to know that most tinnitus settles down and becomes more manageable over time. The key is to get the correct information and help from our tinnitus specialists as soon as possible. We also provide help and support for patients with hyperacusis (sensitivity to loud sounds). We will spend time exploring your needs before selecting the best combination of therapies, advice and information for you.

"I found the tinnitus and balance service very helpful as they fully explained what tinnitus is all about which helped me tremendously to accept the tinnitus. They also suggested tips on how to manage the tinnitus which I found useful and helpful.  It hasn't taken the tinnitus away but it has made it more manageable and life bearable." Anna Gladwin

Balance service

We can assess your balance giving consideration to your wider health needs. Positional Vertigo (BPPV) can be treated, where appropriate, by performing particle repositioning manoeuvres. Where onward referral to a consultant is indicated, we can give advice on how best to manage your dizziness and imbalance as you wait for your appointment. With a medical referral we can provide a full range of therapies including balance retraining exercises and relaxation techniques.

Hearing service

After assessing your hearing and exploring your communication needs, we can provide and fit private hearing aids and assistive listening devices as indicated. We also offer advice and information on hearing tactics and provide people with swim moulds and hearing protection as required.
