Portable Audiometry and Fitting for Community Clinics

Organisation : NHS Lothian - Audiology Department, Level 1 Lauriston Building
Grant Amount : £ 4,920

To compliment the 2 Lothian wide community based clinics currently run by the Adult Audiology service, the aim is to offer community repair and review clinics in GP practices and health centers for existing hearing aid users who currently have to come to either Lauriston Building, St.Johns or Roodlands. There is an inequality issue with all of these clinics due to a lack of portable equipment capable of allowing testing and fitting to be carried out in a manner comparable with the hospital sites.
