Hearing Consultation (Ear Health Check)
The hearing consultation can last up to 20 minutes.
The highly trained Audiologist will run through some key sections of your medical history and hearing health and concerns. They will spend time discussing your symptoms, hearing history and ENT (Ear-Nose-Throat) health, hearing history, areas in your lifestyle where you experience difficulties hearing, as well as other related issues such as family history, previous noise exposure, and issues relating to ear wax or tinnitus.
During Video-otoscopy the audiologist will examine the health of your ear canal and eardrums using our specialist video camera to detect any obvious issues or obstructions within the ear. We can display this on the screen if you request. We will save the image with your medical notes to allow us to compare the health of your ears when necessary.
Once this is complete the audiologist will discuss the appropriate management going forward and if you require further appointments or a referral to your GP.
