More than a hearing test

North East Hearing & Balance is a family-run practice offering a comprehensive range of Audiology services. Our mission is to help people live their fullest lives, with confidence in their hearing and balance. Combining clinical expertise with the latest technologies ensures we provide first-class hearing healthcare.

Serving the North East and beyond

Ideally located in Darlington, County Durham just off the A1(M); between the North East and North Yorkshire areas of Newcastle, Gateshead, Tyneside, Leeds, York and Teesside; we are also close to the A66 making us easily accessible from the large towns of Carlisle and Penrith in Cumbria.

Our fully-equipped and comfortable clinic room is located in the Darlington Business Centre, in the West End of Darlington near to the town centre, with free on-site parking.

Personalised care centered around you and your family

We believe in Person-Centred Care – an approach to healthcare that recognises how important it is that healthcare professionals work with the people who use their services.  Person-centred care supports people to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make informed decisions and more effectively manage their audiological treatment and rehabilitation.
