Service to visit towns more often
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.
