How to Refer

Clinic type: Audiology - Hearing Assess/Reassess

Add your post code

For The Outside Clinic, you will need to add SN1 3EP - The service is domiciliary only and doesn’t have service locations in the area, this means that a local eRS search does not pick up the service

The service locations for the other services will be picked up with a local eRS search.

Choose the service you want from the list

If you are unable to refer via eRS, refer via email (see service contact details above).
