We are looking for an Audiologist experienced in vestibular testing to include history taking, basic eye assessment, VHIT, VNG, Water & /or Air Calorics and VEMP. The hours offered would suit clinicians looking to address work/life balance, have a varied working week or those looking for their next challenge.

We run balance clinics at Queen's Hospital in Romford, with trains to London Liverpool Street taking around 25 minutes. We also provide wax removal, tinnitus, GPDR and ENT support, which the candidate may be asked to cover as appropriate. All Audiologists are given an area of responsibility and would be supported with necessary training and development.

Undertake a range of audiological diagnostic & physiological tests to national, professional and local protocols. Where the clinical situation or best interests of the patient justify deviations from protocol, or contraindications are found in the case notes and/or medical notes, this should be fully documented in the patient records after seeking guidance on justification if required.

Candidates must demonstrate strong team working skills, good communication skills and the ability to use their initiative.
