What happens next?

During your transition, you and your clinician will have decided the right time for you to transfer to adult services. We will send all the information about you and your hearing to them. You will be seen at RHH within 6 months of your last appointment at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. If you need new batteries or help with your hearing aid before that appointment then contact the children’s hospital workshop as before on 0114 271 7462.

What do I do if I need a new mould, new batteries or my hearing aid breaks?

After your first appointment at RHH, you can make an appointment with the adult audiology services as you were shown at your initial appointment with them. The contact details are:
