Do I get a choice of hearing aids?

I have recently been diagnosed with moderate hearing loss in both ears but my right ear is slightly worse. I have an appointment to have a hearing aid. Do I get to choose the type of aid, and will they take into account my job as I work for the Police ?

Answer: 

Your audiologist will discuss with you the most appropriate type of hearing aid for your loss and lifestyle requirements, including your job in the police. You do not state whether your aid will be purchased privately or obtained through the NHS but, in general terms, there is more choice when buying hearing aids privately.
