What should I do if I have a problem with my Hearing or Balance?

Go to your own doctor (GP) if you have any problem with your hearing or balance, they will refer you to the most appropriate service for your needs.

NB: if you have a sudden loss of hearing in one or both ears then go as soon as possible to your nearest Accident and Emergency (A&E) department. Treatment for sudden hearing loss needs to be started within 48 hours to have the best chance of success.
