Adult diagnostic audiology 

Based at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH) in Kings Cross. The Audiologists provide an Audiologist Led Clinic (ALC) as well as supporting tertiary level medical clinics within ear, nose and throat and neurotology services.

The ALC is a direct access clinic for adults aged 18 to 75 with:

  • Tinnitus and/or hearing loss or
  • Balance problems

Providing assessment, treatment, follow-up and aftercare the ALC is a service provided by experienced audiologists with a high level of expertise who also work at a tertiary level.

ALC is available via GP referral via the NHS e-Referral Service (formally Choose and Book referrals) or referral letter.

Complex cases will be identified and thoroughly assessed, thus streamlining onward referral to appropriate consultant led services at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH). We aim to give the best care possible in a timely manner at a range of convenient facilities.
