See your GP if you’re having problems with your hearing. They can refer you to a hearing specialist for an assessment if they think you might need a hearing aid.
The models available nowadays on the NHS are a great improvement on those used in the past. They’re smaller and neater, and they work better too.
The earlier you get them, the more you’ll get out of them – so don’t wait until your hearing gets really bad before seeing your GP.
