Is the emergency department the best place for you?

If not, there are other options



The Audiology Department at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) provides audiological services, using specialised equipment, to individuals over the age of 18 years of age. Services are provided to inpatients and outpatients by appointment.

The Audiologists at the RAH assess individuals who are experiencing:

  • Decreased/changed hearing
  • Damaged hearing as a result of a medical event, such as head trauma, neurological pathology or ototoxic drug use
  • Significantly distressing tinnitus
  • Communication difficulties associated with hearing loss
  • Balance issues and dizziness
