Strike action is taking place in June. We'll contact you directly if you or your child's appointment is affected.

There are rail strikes planned for May and June, which may affect your journey to our hospital and community centres. If you or your child has an appointment booked, please do all you can to attend. Plan your journey ahead and allow extra time.

Audiology service

Watch a film about our service

Our children and young people's audiology centre (CYPAC) cares for children and young people with hearing difficulties.

Are you visiting us for a hearing assessment?

Watch our ‘My visit to children’s audiology’ film with your child, to help prepare them for their hearing assessment. Join Noah and his Mum as they visit children’s audiology and find out about the different types of tests that may be done during an appointment. 

We also have specially created films for children and parents about hearing loss.

Our service is split into routine and specialist care. Our routine service provides hearing tests for children of all ages as well as care for children with middle-ear disorders.

We provide routine care for children in our local boroughs:

  • Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Lewisham

We provide specialist care across south east London boroughs including:

  • Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Lewisham
  • Bexley
  • Bromley
  • Greenwich

We also offer specialist hearing assessments for children with autism spectrum disorder or other complex needs in our Hummingbird Clinic.

Working in the community

In addition to St Thomas' Hospital, we have specialist clinics at:

and routine community clinics at: 

Our routine community clinics help us assess preschool and school age children to see if they have a middle ear disorder (for which they may need to be referred to their GP or an ear, nose and throat surgeon), or a more serious hearing disorder which requires further investigation.

At these clinics we work with colleagues from other services including:

Specialist hearing assessment for children with autism spectrum disorder or other complex needs

Thanks to Guy's and St Thomas' Charity, we have new and innovative ways of providing hearing assessment to children with autism spectrum disorder or other complex needs in our Hummingbird Clinic.
