If you're referred to audiology, we'll invite you in for an assessment. We’ll ask you a few questions about your hearing and any related conditions you might have. You might have to do a few different hearing tests during your appointment. We’ll go through your options in detail and decide on the best treatment.
If you need a hearing aid, we might take an impression of your ear to make custom ear mould. You’ll come back at a later date to try your new hearing aid and make sure you’re happy with it. We’ll also show you how to use and look after your hearing aid.
You may also be invited to appointments for:
- adjusting your hearing aid
- a follow up to see how you’re getting on
- rehabilitation if you need extra support
- hearing aid repairs
