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 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.
