We offer a transition service for young adults moving from paediatric services (which are clinician-led) to adult services (which are patient-led).

We have a dedicated transition audiologist named Emilee Gosnell, who can be contacted through the departmental contact number on 020 8725 1151 or via departmental email on stgh-tr.audiology@nhs.net.

We accept referrals from other paediatric services whose patients would like to transition to St George’s Hospital Adult Hearing Service. We accept referrals directly from paediatric audiology services and/or any professional working with a hearing impaired/deaf/ deaf young adult aged 16-25 years old, provided that hearing aids are up to date and investigations into the cause of the hearing loss have been completed. The referral form can be found here.

We offer an initial introductory appointment in the adult clinic prior to discharge from the paediatric services. We also offer supra-specialist clinics for adults with Additional Needs. We can transition young adults with special needs into this clinic.
