National Audiology Standards

Quality Standards for Paediatric Audiology

It is important to us all in paediatric audiology within NHS Lothian to aspire to deliver the best possible audiology care for children and their families. We must know the minimum acceptable standards of care that children and their families can expect to receive on their journey through paediatric audiology services.

We are asked to regularly self-assess our performance against the National Audiology Standards using the documentation included within the link below, this helps us to identify any possible areas of weakness and highlight strengths and areas of good practice within our service.

The link below offers a much more detailed explanation of the history of the standards and their development and implementation.
