The Children’s Hearing Service (also known as Paediatric Audiology) offer a comprehensive family friendly service for babies, children and young people living in West Hertfordshire where there is a concern about their hearing or a known hearing difficulty. We are a team of skilled and experienced Paediatric Audiologists, a Consultant in Audiovestibular Medicine and Audiology Assistants.
The Children’s Hearing Service has changed the way we are working because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are still accepting new referrals through the normal referral route but we have reduced service capacity at this time.
In order to comply with social distancing, the duration of any face-to-face appointments are being minimised. We may therefore contact you ahead of your appointment to take an up to date medical history or you may be asked to complete a history questionnaire. Some appointments may be offered virtually via ‘Attend Anywhere’.
Information on using ‘Attend Anywhere’ can be found at:https://nhs.attendanywhere.com/callers
If you have a booked virtual appointment with us, the link to connect with us can be found on: https://nhs.vc/hct-cyp-audiology
If you have any questions or queries, please contact us on the departmental email address: email@example.com
The department continues to provide essential support to our hearing aid users to ensure their hearing aids remain fully functional. If you require hearing aid batteries or supplies please contact us on the departmental email address and we can arrange for these to be posted out.
If your child requires new ear moulds or you have a broken hearing aid, then please contact us on the departmental email address. Currently we are only conducting hearing aids repairs at the Peace Children's Centre. Please DO NOT drop off hearing aids at any other site, as they may be unmanned. Please note that the turnaround time for dealing with requests, repairs and replacement ear moulds may take longer than usual.
