The updated joint guidance document – Audiology & Otology guidance during Covid-19 – is now available to download.
AIHHP, BAA, BSA and BSHAA have worked together again to ensure the guidance is up-to-date; reflecting current government advice and bringing the guidance into alignment with the updated ENT document: A Graduated Return to Elective ENT Within the COVID-19 Pandemic (25th May, 2020)
Whilst the previous version of the joint guidance moved audiology from emergency and essential, to delivering services where there is audiological need, this latest update brings additional advice for perforated ears, screening changes for Covid-19 symptoms and provides important information on vestibular testing (appendix 7).
The emphasis remains on providing care remotely first and, whenever possible, only offering face-to-face care where it is clinically necessary and safe to do so.
