    Bradford’s newborn hearing screening programme has been recognised nationally for the high standard of care it delivers to babies with suspected hearing loss and their parents.

    The service at Bradford Royal Infirmary, part of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has been named by Public Health England as one of only a handful of sites nationally that have consistently met and exceeded the standard for time taken to see a hearing specialist from the audiology service after referral from the screen.

    The newborn hearing screening test helps to identify babies who have permanent hearing loss as early as possible. This means parents can get the support and advice they need right from the start.
