Audiological medicine information for parents and visitors

Welcome to the homepage of the Audiological Medicine department at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Audiological medicine is a medical speciality providing diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of hearing and balance. Hearing problems also include tinnitus and auditory processing disorders.

At Great Ormond Street Hospital, we see patients as young as new-borns right through to the late teenage years and accept referrals from within the hospital and from external professionals.

A range of technology is used to assist patients with hearing deficits including digital hearing aids, bone conduction hearing implants, middle ear implants, cochlear implants and vibrotactile aids. The team of audiologists, clinical scientists and audiovestibular physicians provide an integrated service.

In addition, we have developed a number of protocols and contributed to the formulation of national guidelines for the management of children with different complex conditions.
