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 if necessary.
You can arrange this by visiting your GP surgery and they will consider a referral to the Audiology Department at the hospital or you can organise a private appointment with us. 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.
The report of your child’s hearing assessment can be forwarded to GP, ENT and other professionals, including their school, at your request. As part of the assessment we offer a follow up appointment to assess progress, which is included in the initial cost.
