On Examination of the Ear

Complete or partial obstruction of the external auditory canal preventing proper examination or abnormal appearance of the outer ear and/or the eardrum (e.g. inflammation of the external auditory canal, perforated eardrum; active discharge)

If NO is ticked for all of the above statements, the patient is suitable for AQP and referral can be made to one of the providers listed on Choose and Book as a provider of AQP Adult Hearing Services.
If YES is ticked to ANY of the above statements, the patient is unsuitable for AQP and therefore a referral should be made to Audiology/ENT through the normal referral pathway.


Does the patient require a domiciliary visit? If so, please confirm that the patient is housebound and is unable to leave their home environment without assistance.
