Joint COVID guidance in response to lockdown

In light of greater restrictions announced throughout the United Kingdom we would advise professionals to once again review the joint guidance in line with Alert level 4 in appendix 9. All departments/businesses should be operating in line with this guidance. Local NHS/Business decisions on maintaining services may also be in place. Level 4 of the Joint Guidance advises remote care where possible, face to face care for those with any hearing need and triaging required for all those coming to clinic. Audiology continues to be an essential service and following the joint guidance ensures you are practicing in a Covid secure environment. The Joint Audiology Guidance is due for full review on 15th January 2021.
