Tinnitus and balance disorders.

Dr Veronica Kennedy works in the following services:

Audiology for Children

Our specialised service supports children aged 0 to 19 (if in full-time education) with hearing and balance difficulties and works closely with a number of other services.  We provide hearing aid assessments, management of hearing loss and hearing aids, and instigate medical investigations to determine possible causes of hearing loss and balance problems.

Newborn Hearing Screening

To detect and treat hearing loss as soon as possible we offer screening to all babies born at the Royal Bolton Hospital. Babies who have a Bolton GP but were born at another hospital or at home, as well as those babies less than three months old who have moved into the Bolton area without having completed a hearing screen elsewhere, are offered an outpatient appointment at the Royal Bolton Hospital.

Visitor restrictions

To protect you and our staff during the current outbreak of Covid-19 we’ve put in place significant restrictions on hospital visitors.

Full details of these can be found on our website.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and helping us stop the spread of Covid-19.
