Always contact your family doctor/ GP if you think you have hearing loss.
They may refer you to an Audiologist for a hearing test. You could also check for your closest Independent Audiologist or if you wanted to go public through the hospital system, your GP could refer you.
Please keep in mind that the hospital system can have a long waiting list.
It is also always worth checking if you are eligible for the Hearing Services Program. The Australian Government Hearing Services Program provides eligible people access to a wide range of high-quality, fully subsidised hearing services and devices.
Anyone can check their eligibility for the program on the Hearing Services website.
