Identifying hearing loss in babies is vital for all aspects of childhood development.

All babies born in Victoria are offered a newborn hearing screen. Babies who require further testing are referred to specialist Newborn Audiology Diagnostic Centres – of which there are only a handful in Victoria.  

Our Ballarat diagnostic centre provides a no-cost service to patients from across Central Victoria, from Bacchus Marsh through to Horsham. However, our diagnostic equipment is in urgent need of replacement. It is vital that this very sensitive equipment can be trusted to give reliable results.

This year, we’d like your help to purchase a newborn hearing diagnostic machine.
