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.


Bolton has run a successful Newborn Hearing Screening Programme since 2003.


Meet the Team

The members of the screening team work very closely with the midwifery and health visiting teams as well as the audiology department and other health professionals.
