ESORT Hearing Services Working Group – Summary Overview
The Department established a working group under the Ex-Service Organisation Round Table (ESORT), a key client consultative body, to consider issues about delivery of hearing services to DVA clients. The working group was chaired by the Deputy President of the Repatriation Commission. The working group met three times in 2016 between March and November.
Matters discussed by the working group are summarised in the ESORT Hearing Services Working Group – Summary Overview.
