Mrs Gemma MacQueen
Clinical Scientist in Audiology
BSc, MSc, CAC
"Working at the Spire London East Hospital is very rewarding. Staff are friendly, approachable and committed to excellent patient care."
I began my career in 2003 after achieving a MSc at University College London in Audiological Science. I have undertaken further training to achieve my Certificate of Audiological Competence to become a registered Clinical Scientist in Audiology. I have gained vast experience over the years in all areas of Audiology including adult hearing and balance testing, tinnitus assessment and management, hearing aid fitting and balance rehabilitation as well as paediatric hearing testing, including diagnosis of hearing loss in newborn children, and hearing aid fitting. My extensive experience has provided me with the skills to confidently and competently test and manage patients with complex audiological issues.
I specialise in audiological assessment in adults and children from the age of 7 months and over including monitoring for glue ear cases using specialised methods such as visual reinforcement audiometry, play audiometry and tympanometry. I also specialise in balance testing and treatment for benign paroxysamol positional vertigo (BPPV).
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Gemma MacQueen at Spire include:
Audiology and hearing therapy
Hearing tests in adults and children. Positional balance testing and treatment in adults.
Spire London East Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
