Moving on

Generally children transfer to the care of their local  adult audiology team when they are 16-18 years old, depending on their circumstances. If a child has additional needs we will typically continue to manage them up until they are around 19 years old.  Our team has considerable experience in the assessment of children's hearing and the appropriate care of those children identified with a hearing impairment and we work closely with our colleagues in the adult audiology department to ensure a smooth transition. You can download our patient information leaflets below.
