Refer your patients to Lions Hearing Clinic
Thank you for making your patients hearing care a priority and choosing Lions Hearing Clinic – your trusted hearing provider in Western Australia and New South Wales.
GPs are crucial to detecting hearing loss, with people more likely to seek help from their GP than from a hearing clinic.

With appointments to suit your patient, we take the time to understand your patient’s current hearing requirements, and our recommendations are backed by research and catered to their current needs. We are commission-free and offer a complete range of hearing devices from leading manufacturers.

Hearing loss is highly prevalent and can significantly impact our social, emotional, and physical health. We recommended a hearing check every year.

Does your patient wear hearing aids?
Hearing aids help many people, but as your hearing loss progresses, a cochlear implant may give you the clarity and volume you need to understand speech again. Cochlear implants are life-changing devices that can help you hear sounds you no longer hear with your hearing aids, restoring your confidence and connecting you to loved ones.
