Description

The Audiology Department deals with patients experiencing hearing difficulties. Hearing loss is common and can develop at any stage of your life, even at birth, but most often happens as you get older. Hearing loss can be mild, moderate, severe or profound. Deafness is a partial or complete loss of hearing. 

Hours

Mon – Fri 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

Referral Expectations

Audiology referrals are accepted from GPs, Ear Nose and Throat Surgeons, Paediatricians, Ear Nurse Specialists, and others in the community.

Newborn hearing screening checks are performed to see if your baby hears well. All eligible babies can have Newborn Hearing Screening free of charge.  If your baby has a hearing loss, finding it early will help their language, learning and social development. 

This screening is carried out in both hospital and community settings. Check here for further information on newborn hearing screening in Northland.
