Department of Audiology – Southend University NHS Foundation Trust

We aim to provide a high quality, efficient and friendly service for all children with suspected audio-vestibular and communication disorders in order for them to achieve their full potential.

All children with hearing concerns will need to be referred to either the ear, nose and throat (ENT) department or to the Paediatric Audiology clinic at the Lighthouse Child Development Centre. Babies tested through the newborn hearing screening program will be referred directly to our audiology team where required.

This Audiology Department is a UKAS Accredited Service.
