How to access the paediatric audiology service

There are varying different routes through which children can be referred into Audiology. This might be dependent upon the age of the child and the professionals who are working with them at that point. However, a referral can be made by one of the following:

  • Your GP
  • Speech and Language Therapist
  • From the Newborn Hearing Screening Programme
  • Health Visitor
  • Ear, Nose and Throat Consultant
  • School Nurse*
  • Paediatrician

*If your child attends a private school and you have concerns about their hearing, you can get a referral from your GP into Audiology. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to answer any questions from patients who have not been referred to the service. This is because it is difficult to provide appropriate advice without a full clinical history and test results.
