Paediatric audiology is based at the Royal National ENT & Eastman Dental Hospital. The service provides Audiological assessments for children ranging from newborns to 18-year-olds.
We support the Audiological assessment of a variety of hearing and balance disorders carried out in the Audiovestibular Medicine (AVM) and Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Clinics at the RNTNEH.
We provide hearing tests of babies referred from the newborn hearing screening programme.
We provide hearing aids for children and young people with hearing loss.
We work as part of a multidisciplinary team including Audiovestibular Physicians, Teachers of the Deaf, Psychologists and Speech-Language Therapists based in the RNENT & Eastman Dental Hospital.
