Children's Hearing Centre

COVID-19 update

During the Covid 19 restrictions we were unable to run our usual clinics. However, as restrictions are lifted slowly we can hold more of our clinics again. We still have to restrict the number of children seen in a clinic to allow time for cleaning in between patients. We are trying our best to see patients - but review appointments may be delayed.

If you need any spares or have a problem with your child's hearing aid (or cochlear implant) please contact us using our email: or by phoning 0117 342 1611 between 8.30am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.

If you and your child are attending an appointment at the centre, please take a look at our  Ben and Betsy go to the Children's Hearing Centre leaflet as things are a bit different from usual.

We will be wearing PPE including a cloth mask (we have clear visors available to help with lipreading if needed). 

There is a security guard at the front entrance to St Michael's Hospital who will give you a mask to wear.  Only one person can accompany a child to an appointment

Please continue to take care and contact us if you have any problems with any of your devices or wish to talk to an audiologist.
