Medical audiology follow up from newborn hearing tests

My baby has been referred to hearing services at Sheffield Children’s – what happens next?

You will be sent an appointment to attend a joint clinic with audiology professionals and a specialist paediatrician. We are based at Sheffield Children’s Hospital on Western Bank on C floor, by the Green stairs and lifts.

What will happen at this appointment?

We will talk about the results of your baby’s hearing test with you and agree the next steps. These may include further assessment or steps to manage any hearing loss. The specialist doctor will talk about other medical tests that may be needed for children identified with a hearing loss and also consider your child’s development. Appointments usually last around 1 hour.

What follow up will there be after this appointment?

We may plan further assessment of your baby’s hearing. If it would help your baby at this time to have hearing aids we may start the process.

We may talk with you a long term plan for reviewing your baby’s hearing

Where can I get additional support and information?

We can provide contact information to professionals and voluntary agencies who can help.
