Southern Cochlear Implant Programme

Treatment for adults

If hearing aids are no longer of benefit to you, you may be a candidate for a cochlear implant.

Before we recommend cochlear implantation we will need to establish whether the procedure is suitable for you.

In adults, a cochlear implant might be the correct procedure if you display:

  • Moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss
  • Good oral/ aural communication skills
  • Limited or no benefit from hearing aids
  • 60% or less on HINT Sentences, 30% or less on CNC Words
  • Sensorineural hearing loss caused by meningitis

There is no maximum age for referral to the Programme and patients with additional needs are not excluded.
