Audiological care

Audiological care consists of, among other things, the testing of hearing function.

Audiological care consists of:

  • testing the hearing function;
  • advice on the hearing aid to be purchased;
  • information on the use of the aid;
  • the psychosocial care required as a result of problems with the impaired hearing function;
  • assistance in establishing a diagnosis in the event of speech and language disorders in children.


Referral required for audiological care

For audiological care, you will require a referral from a general practitioner, a medical specialist, a youth doctor, a doctor for the mentally disabled, a clinical technologist, a specialist in geriatric medicine or triage hearing specialist. The referral will remain valid for a period of twelve months, commencing on the day the referral was issued.
