Children's Hearing Services

Service details

We aim to enable children to reach their full potential via identification and appropriate management of hearing impairment. The Paediatric Audiology service is provided at hospital sites and community locations to ensure that families are seen closer to home where appropriate.

A full history will be taken and a developmental age appropriate hearing assessment will be performed. The hearing assessment results will be explained and appropriate management options will be discussed. We engage with parents, carers and children throughout the planning and decision making process.
