Hearing and Balance UK


The organisation, originally known as The National Committee of Professionals in Audiology (NCPA), before changing its name to The United Kingdom Federation of Professionals in Hearing and Balance (UKFPHB) was set up in 1990 as an
independent committee representing the interests of the entire range of professional groups active in the field of Audiology. Thus it has a unique status in that it can be said to be a voice for the whole Audiology profession and related disciplines.

Each of the member organisations is represented by a single committee member who acts as link between the HAB UK and their own professional organisation and provides a briefing about the activities of their own professional group at each

Clerical support is provided by the BSA entirely free of charge and meetings are arranged on a quarterly basis at the National Hospital, Queen Square, London. Our main point of contact is through Catherine Ward at the British Society of
Audiology, 80 Brighton Rd, Reading RG6 1PS. Tel 0118 966 0622 or by email to

The following organisations have a seat on the committee:

ACPIVR – Association of Chartered Pyhsiotherapists in Vestibular Rehabilitation

BAA – British Academy of Audiology

BAAP – British Association of Audiovestibular Physicians

BAEA - British Association of Educational Audiologists

BAPA - British Association of Paediatricians in Audiology [previously British
Association of Community Doctors in Audiololgy]

BATOD - British Association of Teachers of the Deaf

BSA – British Society of Audiology

BSHAA - British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists

ENT UK - British Association of Otolaryngologists – Head & Neck Surgeons

RCSLT – Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists

In addition to the above organisations who have full membership there are several organisations with observer status on the committee:

- A UK hearing loss organisation that makes it easy to find the right information, services and support-

MRC IHR – Medical Research Council Institute of Hearing Research

NDCS – National Deaf Children’s Society

NHS Supply Chain – NHS Supply Chain

RNID – Royal National Institute for Deaf People

UKCoD – United Kingdom Council on Deafness

Four observer seats are also reserved for Government/Assembly representatives from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, one from each country.

Hearing and Balance UK is thus unusual in that it is very broad-based, consisting of representatives from the field of education as well as healthcare, from charities as well as professional bodies, from the private as well as the public sector.

The primary aims of HAB UK are to

• provide a national forum for debate of professional issues

• to provide a forum for the sharing of information

• to act as a collective voice for all professions in hearing and balance

• prepare and advise on reports and give recommendations on issues
regarding hearing and balance services and related matters

As HAB UK represents a wide variety of associations it is able to view audiological issues from a wider perspective than may be possible in totally profession based organisations. It is therefore in a very good position to act as a channel of access between professional associations and the relevant government departments.

HAB UK will also, via working parties, produce position statements, guidelines and statements of best practice on a very wide range of issues, for example UNHS, lost/ damaged hearing aids, classroom acoustics and service provision.
