Getting used to hearing aids

Follow-up hearing appointment

You should be invited to a follow-up appointment with your audiologist once you’ve had your hearing aids fitted. This may be face-to-face, over the phone or online.

At this appointment, your audiologist will check:

  • how well you’ve been getting on with your hearing aids
  • if you’ve been wearing them consistently
  • if you’ve had any problems using or maintaining them
  • if they have been comfortable to wear for long periods.

If you need any adjustments, they can make these for you in the appointment. If you have a telephone or online appointment, they will arrange a face-to-face appointment to fix any problems, if this can’t be done remotely.

It’s important to tell your audiologist if you have any problems or if you aren’t sure about something. 

They’ll be happy to help solve any problems you’ve been having, and can explain anything you’re not sure about. They want you to hear well and be confident with your hearing aids.

Your audiologist will explain how to arrange any further appointments.
