Audiology

Who we are 

The PCH Audiology department is equipped to provide a comprehensive range of hearing and balance-related services for infants, children and adolescents from birth to 16 years of age.

We work closely with both the Ear, Nose, Throat and Otolaryngology (ENT) department, which provides surgical services for complex ear, nose and throat conditions, and the WA Newborn Hearing Screening Program to ensure infants suspected of having hearing difficulty are promptly managed.

Services we provide

Our experienced team of audiologists sees inpatients and outpatients for a range of services including:

  • Behavioural hearing assessment
  • Electrophysiological assessment of hearing and balance disorders
  • Cochlear, middle ear and bone conduction implant assessment and management through the Children’s Hearing Implant Program (CHIP)
  • Intraoperative support
  • Ototoxic monitoring
  • Early diagnosis of hearing impairment in conjunction with the WA Newborn Hearing Screening Program
  • Prevention of hearing and auditory problems through education programs and research.

Referrals

The Audiology department accepts referrals via the PCH Central Referral Service.

Inpatients attending PCH for hearing-related issues are usually admitted to the hospital under the care of an ENT consultant, who works closely with our audiologists to provide family-centred care in line with the principles of best practice.

Hours

Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm.

We also provide services to PCH inpatient services during these hours.

Location

Audiology clinics are located on the Ground Level of the PCH Outpatient Department.
