Staff work with the child and family to consider all health and wellbeing issues, not just hearing loss, with referral to other health services as needed.
Hearing assessments are offered in the following sites across Leeds in purpose built, soundproofed facilities so that they are close to people’s homes:
|Armley Moor Health Centre
95 Town Street LS12 3HD

Children are referred into the service from health professionals including GPs, paediatricians, school nurses, health visitors, speech and language therapists and screening programmes such as the newborn hearing screening programme and school screen.
All patients are seen within 6 weeks of referral. The Community Paediatric Audiology Service is available on Choose and Book through your GP.
Appointments last 30 minutes. It is helpful if you do not bring other children to your child's hearing assessment.
