QE Gateshead's  Audiology Department is based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

We provide services for adults and children with hearing impairments at community clinics at Bensham Hospital and Blaydon Primary Care Centre.

These services include hearing assessments, advice and provision of hearing aids. Ongoing support and maintenance can be delivered at selected sites. We also provide support to the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) team.

Our service has extended opening hours from Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5:30pm.


Your GP can refer you to our Audiology department for a hearing test if you are not an existing patient at QE Gateshead.

Any sudden changes to your hearing or complaints of pain, discharge, infection or wax should be dealt with via your GP services.

We offer a limited home visit service for housebound patients. Contact the Audiology Department on 0191 445 2530 with any enquiries regarding this service.
