How to access our service 

Referrals are accepted from any health professional who is concerned about a child’s hearing. If a parent is concerned we would ask them to contact their GP or Health Visitor for a referral to be made. We are also happy to see children who have previously been under the care of the department within the last 12 months if there are parental concerns.
