Referral criteria and response time

The Children's Hearing Centre receives referrals from:

  • Newborn Hearing Screening Programme (NHSP)
  • General Practitioners (GP's)
  • Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) Consultants
  • Paediatricians
  • Health Visitors
  • Speech and Language Therapists
  • School Nurses
  • School Hearing Screener

If you are concerned about your child’s hearing, please speak to your health visitor or GP about a referral to our service.

We aim to see children within 6 weeks of receipt of a referral in most cases, or sooner if there is an urgent need (for example post-meningitis, or if there is a sudden change in hearing).
