Subject:        Paediatric audiology service




This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act. Please confirm that you have received this request.


The aim of these questions is to provide a benchmark for monitoring staffing capacity and other indicators of a quality paediatric audiology service, over the next five years. We are told by decision-makers, such as Health Education England, that more evidence is needed before any changes will be made to improve the availability of staff. We know from previous research that recruiting and retaining staff with the appropriate expertise, is a problem, and we hope that annual monitoring of staffing will benefit audiology services, as well as deaf children and their families.





Please find information attached.
