New Paediatric Room

Thanks to a very kind donation from a Patient we have managed to refurbish our Paediatric room. The new sound proof room has been designed to suit the needs of the department and is now up and running.


We need your help!

We are looking for more members to join our Audiology Service Improvement Group (ASIG). This group meets 2-3 times a year to discuss service developments and patient information. The decisions made at these groups shape our service and help improve the patient experience. If you are interested or would like more information please leave your name and contact details with reception (01903 285013) or email wshnt.audiologydepartment@nhs.net.


UKAS Accreditation

“UKAS is the UK’s National Accreditation Body, responsible for determining, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of organisations such as those offering testing, calibration and certification services.”

In the last year we have retained our UKAS accreditation for Adult Rehabilitation and our Paediatric Service.



Paediatric Equipment Funded by Friends of Worthing

The Friends of Worthing have recently funded some new paediatric equipment.

We have now had this installed and it is significantly improving the experience for our patients

We are extremely grateful to the Friends of Worthing Hospitals who have always been a great support to the department.
