We are a team of Audiologists (scientifically and technically trained professionals in hearing and balance problems) and a Consultant in Audiovestibular Medicine (medical doctor with specialist training in hearing and balance disorders). The local manager for the newborn hearing screening programme is a Health Visitor by profession. We are supported by office administration staff.

The key aims of our services are:

  • to identify hearing and balance problems by carrying out routine and complex tests as well as specialised diagnostic tests
  • to provide advice and ensure that the child or young person and their families/carers get the maximum benefit from his or her hearing and listening
  • to provide, maintain and support the use of hearing aids
  • to be approachable and listen to the needs of the child and the family/carer.
