Hearing problems

Help from your doctor
If you are having problems with your hearing, go to your doctor as soon as possible.  Your doctor may:

  • Give you treatment particularly if there is a blockage or an infection
  • Refer you to a specialist for a more detailed examination – perhaps to the audiology department or to an ear, nose and throat consultant
  • Refer you to a hearing therapist who can give advice about living with hearing loss and making the most of your remaining hearing.
