Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Service
On this page:
The tinnitus and hyperacusis service is for children and adults who have difficulty coping with tinnitus (noises in the ears and/or head) and/or hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound).
At your first appointment, you will see an audiovestibular physician or ENT surgeon, who will take your history and work towards identifying a cause for the tinnitus and/or hyperacusis. You will most likely have a hearing test, which will be undertaken by an audiologist. Once the consultant has all the test results available, you will have a discussion about management options and you might be referred for hearing aids, or to hearing therapy (adults) for additional support.
Services are offered for the boroughs of Wandsworth, Merton and any other borough for whom we receive referral for specialist advice. Appointments are offered at Lanesborough Wing, St George’s Hospital (adults) or Lanesborough Wing, Trevor Howell Ward, St George’s Hospital (children).
If you are new to the service, you will require a referral from your GP or other specialist within the hospital. If you are new to us, your appointment is arranged by the central bookings service, who can be reached on 020 8725 0007.
If you would like to be seen at St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, we will accept a referral from your GP or other specialists in the hospital. Your GP can arrange through the e-Referral system.
