AQP - Adult Hearing - Age related hearing loss

Under Any Qualified Provider (AQP) choice for patients for a selected number of services has been widened. This includes hearing service for adults over the age of 55 years with age related hearing loss. AQP offers the opportunity for provider to deliver a service as long as they meet the requirements around qualification and can deliver the service within the Payment by Results tariff (or locally derived tariff if national tariff is not available).

Access to AQP is via GP referral through Choose & Book or via paper referral. A referral proforma is available on Choose and Book and should be used to ensure the patient is suitable for AQP Adult Hearing Services or requires referral into core Audiology or ENT services.
