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.
