If you are concerned about your child’s hearing, click here for indicators, or if there is a history of hearing problems in the family, it may be a good idea to arrange a simple hearing screening test which can be followed by a more in-depth hearing assessment, where necessary.
You can arrange this by visiting your GP and they will consider a referral to the audiology department at the hospital or you can organise a private appointment with us at your convenience. Childhood hearing problems are dealt with very efficiently by the health service but there are occasions when you may require a more detailed explanation or advice at a time that is convenient to you in a non-hospital environment.
We offer a comprehensive information service and full report of your individual “child hearing assessment”. The report will be available to you and can be forwarded to GP, ENT and other professionals, including their school, as specified by you the parent. As part of the assessment we offer a follow up appointment at a future date, which is included in the initial fee to assess progress.
