Barnet Hearing & Balance Services


The Children’s & Young People Hearing Services Working Group has been founded to work together across trusts and departments with families, voluntary organisations and young people to provide the best coherent care for children and young people with hearing loss in Barnet. We meet three times a year and liaise by email, telephone or smaller group meetings in between.
