We provide hearing assessments for all adults aged 55 and over, following a GP referral. We also provide assessments for adults under 55 following a referral from ENT. The team has the experience and knowledge to assess all patients, including those with any additional needs.
At the assessment you will be seen by an Audiologist and the appointment may last up to an hour. We will take a short medical history and discuss your hearing difficulties.
The audiologist will examine your ears and carry out a hearing test; you will be asked to wear some headphones and press a button whenever you hear a sound. A range of sounds of differing volumes and tones will be played.
The results of the test will be explained to you during your appointment and we will discuss your options. You may be offered hearing aids if appropriate.
We may need to take impressions of your ears to make earmoulds. A full explanation of the procedure will be given to you by the audiologist at your appointment.
