Investigations

Further tests may be necessary.

Blood tests are usually performed within the Private Hospital.
Microbiological tests are taken by Mr Gillett and are analysed locally.
Ultrasound, CT and MRI scans are performed if necessary.

Complex Audiology Investigations may take up to 3 hours to complete and will be arranged with the local audiologist for a time and date convenient for you.

We recommend that young children’s hearing tests (4 years and below) are performed by a specialist Paediatric Audiologist. This ensures the most accurate assessment of a young child’s hearing, often through the use of specialist play equipment. Sometimes this can be performed prior to seeing Mr Gillett.
Mr Gillett will discuss the results of all investigations performed with the relevant technician or specialist to ensure that the information is accurate and applicable to each individual.
