can I tell if I have hearing loss?
I turn up the TV louder than your family wants it?
you find it hard to follow conversation in pubs and
you struggle to hear on the phone?
you often ask people to repeat what they say?
your partner complain that you don't listen to them?
you find others mumble?
you answer 'yes' to any of these questions, take a quick and
easy Hearing Check and make an appointment to see your GP.
Action on Hearing Loss Check isn't a full hearing test but it
will indicate whether your hearing is in the normal range or
if you should have further tests.
benefit of taking the Hearing Check is that if it does suggest
you have hearing loss, we'll send you a statement of the
results that you can take along to your GP - this might make
it easier for you to get a referral to an audiologist (hearing
specialist) for further tests.
