Shropshire NHS Audiology Services


 

The Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Hospital Trust provides a comprehensive Audiology service for deaf and hard of hearing people in the rural county of Shropshire.  We offer a wide range of services for both adults and children.    

 

We have members of staff who specialise in Adult Rehabilitation, Paediatrics, Hearing Therapy, Tinnitus and Balance. There are Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) consultants and ear-care nurses based at the two main sites.

 

 Local Services  

 

The two main sites are at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford. Audiology services are also provided in 16 community clinics, which are located throughout Shropshire, including Market Drayton Medical Practice.

 

 Short Waiting Times  

 

There are short waiting times for NHS Audiology services. We meet the National Government targets for waiting times, which state that patients should be assessed within 21 days from receipt of a GP referral.

 

The department provides approximately 5,000 hearing assessments a year. If you feel that you need a hearing assessment, you need to visit your GP and ask to be referred to your local NHS Audiology Department.

 

 High Quality Care and Expertise  

 

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust has been recognised for their top class Audiology Services in the national accreditation scheme. The Audiology team have been awarded 'Improving Quality in Physiological diagnostic Services' (IQIPS) accreditation, which is a programme hosted by the Accreditation Unit of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) with support from the Department of Health. The framework has been developed to improve, promote and recognise good quality service practice across nine physiological diagnostic disciplines. Our Audiologists possess high levels of expertise and are all registered with the Council of Clinical Physiologists (RCCP).
