How do I get an appointment for my child?
A written referral letter is required from a health professional i.e. GP, Health Visitor, Speech and Language Therapist, Paediatrician, ENT Consultant. Once we have received the referral letter we will make contact with you in order to book an appointment for your child’s hearing to be assessed.
If your child is already under the care of Paediatric Audiology you may contact us directly to arrange an appointment.
My baby did not pass their Newborn Hearing Screening, what happens now?
It is very common for the Newborn hearing screening test to be inconclusive after the first attempt. We will make contact with you to arrange an appointment for your baby to have a repeat hearing screening.
If your baby does not pass their Newborn hearing screening we will arrange for a further hearing assessment at the Woodloes Audiology Suite.
Where can I collect hearing aid batteries?
You can collect hearing aid batteries free of charge from the Audiology Department at Warwick Hospital. Alternatively, you can send us a stamped and addressed return envelope and we will post the batteries to your home.
My child has been diagnosed with a hearing loss, what happens now?
Your Audiologist may have discussed hearing aids or cochlear implants with you and will support you throughout the process. Excellent help and support is offered through the National Deaf Children’s Society.
My child also has other special needs, how do I make sure that they receive the support that they require?
When you book an appointment for your child to have a hearing assessment please notify us of any special needs or special considerations so that we can make any necessary alterations for them.
If your child wears hearing aids the Integrated Disability Service can offer help and support at home and at school.
