Ser­vice to visit towns more of­ten

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS - David Charlesworth

WITH de­mand for hear­ing checks and treat­ment ris­ing in Har­vey and Wa­roona, Aus­tralian Hear­ing will now be mak­ing reg­u­lar vis­its to both towns.

Hear­ing ser­vices will now be of­fered fort­nightly on Tues­day’s pro­vid­ing the same ser­vices as pre­vi­ously giv­ing hear­ing as­sess­ments, hear­ing de­vice fit­tings and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion sup­port.

Aus­tralian Hear­ing cen­tre man­ager Blanche Coyle said clients no longer needed to travel to Bun­bury for ap­point­ments.

“The new vis­it­ing site of­fers the lo­cal com­mu­nity ac­cess to a full range of hear­ing ser­vices,” Ms Coyle said.

“The Aus­tralian Hear­ing team is re­ally ex­cited to ex­tend our cov­er­age in the lo­cal area and pro­vide the same, high-qual­ity hear­ing ser­vices from our new lo­ca­tion.”

The ser­vice launched its new Har­vey lo­ca­tion on June 26, at shop 1, 6 Becher Street, at the cor­ner of Becher and Gibbs streets.

The ser­vice will also be in Wa­roona on Tues­days, open­ing on al­ter­na­tive weeks to Har­vey.

Ms Coyle said the client base in Har­vey was quite big and had grown through word of mouth.

“I think peo­ple have de­vel­oped re­la­tion­ships with our au­di­ol­o­gists,” she said.

The fre­quency of the ser­vice vis­its could in­crease de­pend­ing on the num­ber of ap­point­ments made.

“If the need grows more, we could visit more of­ten,” Ms Coyle said.

She said Hear­ing Aus­tralia knew coun­try towns ap­pre­ci­ated ser­vices pro­vided lo­cally, par­tic­u­larly clients who might find travel a bit dif­fi­cult.

Hear­ing checks are free for any­one over the age of 18 and take 15 min­utes.

“If they need fur­ther ser­vices, we can dis­cuss the path­ways for that,” Ms Coyle said.

All ap­point­ments are booked through the Hear­ing Aus­tralia Bun­bury of­fice, which can be con­tacted on 9792 1200.
