Australian Hearing

(Question No. 1550)


Mr Champion asked the Minister for Health, in writing, on 17 September 2015:

What locations are currently serviced by Australian Hearing via (a) permanent offices, (b) non-permanent offices, and (c) Australian Hearing's outreach program.


Ms Ley: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

As at 17 September 2015, Australian Hearing has a total of 138 permanent offices and 407 non-permanent (visiting) offices. It also visited 231 outreach sites in 2014/15.

A non-permanent visiting site is a site without permanent staff that is visited by Australian Hearing staff on a regular basis. These sites are usually, but not always, located in a regional area.

An outreach office is a site that provides services to Indigenous Australians and can be in an urban, regional or remote location.

A further breakdown of the locations of these sites as provided by Australian Hearing is as follows:
