Protecting your ears

Prolonged noise exposure can cause permanent hearing loss and tinnitus. It is important to look after your ears as damage builds up over time and can go unnoticed. 

One way to prevent noise-induced hearing loss is to use ear protection. Ear protection may be in the form of 'off-the-shelf' ear plugs or muffs, or may be customised to your specific ear shape.

Customised ear protection is available for purchase from our department. Items on offer include various levels of noise protection, swim plugs and sleep plugs. Should you wish for further information of this service please email audiology.royalberkshire@nhs.net for more information.

Strike Action

Our Trust will be impacted by Royal College of Nursing strike action on 15 and 20 December. We are working to ensure minimal disruption and will contact patients directly if we have to cancel appointments.
