We are currently experiencing issues with our phone lines at Royal Derby Hospital, which is affecting our main switchboard. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will provide an update shortly.
The individual patient management offered is dependent on the type and degree of hearing loss identified, along with the wants and needs of the patient and their family.
It may be appropriate to monitor your child’s hearing loss without intervention, alternatively they may be offered a referral for consultation with an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist for their medical opinion.
Your child may also be offered a hearing aid. We are able to offer a variety of digital hearing aids. Upon fitting your audiologist will discuss with you which will be the most appropriate. Before your child is issued hearing aids it may be necessary for an ear impression to be taken for earmoulds. Your child’s hearing and hearing aid settings be reviewed regularly to fine tune and evaluate their performance.
