Description

The Children's Audiology Service is a specialist centre based at Northampton General Hospital. It provides full hearing testing, diagnosis, hearing aid fitting, and investigations.

The team offers a comprehensive service for children and young people (from birth up to the age of 18) with a possible or confirmed hearing impairment.

The team aims to provide a fast, friendly, and efficient service using staff of the highest calibre and giving a first-rate service to children and families using cutting edge technologies and latest developments in this field.
