About the Organisation

Our community based service provides hearing assessment for any child referred aged 6 months to 16 years, and any child with a permanent hearing impairment requiring monitoring of hearing aid use.

Firstly the service offers assessment for any child whose parents or health and educational professionals are concerned about their hearing. We will plan an age appropriate assessment at a health facility where this can be safely carried out. State of the art premises designed for specialist assessment have been recently built at St Martin’s Hospital on the south side of Bath, and this venue is very popular with parents.

Secondly, we provide specialist care for children with permanent hearing loss through the St Martin’s Hospital clinic with our audiologists and a team of audiology staff. Many of our children are first seen as babies, because their hearing problem was picked up by the newborn hearing screening programme.

For other children a hearing problem becomes apparent when seen in clinic as an older child. We are very happy to see children with known hearing loss, with or without hearing aids, and children with tinnitus. Children with permanent hearing loss are seen regularly for monitoring and hearing aid support using our specialist facility at St Martin’s.

A child can be referred by their GP or health visitor.
