Audiology (hearing, tinnitus, and balance)
Audiology is about identifying and assessing hearing and balance function and their associated disorders. This can include hearing loss as well as tinnitus and balance disorders.
Our Audiology service sees patients who have hearing and balance disorders including hearing loss and tinnitus. For Northern services, our department is based at the North Devon District Hospital and across our Northern Community sites.
The service in Exeter and Eastern Devon is provided by Chime Social Enterprise. Originally part of the RD&E, the service was transferred to Mid Devon PCT in 2004 and became a Social Enterprise in 2011.
