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.
