Default Apple MacBook Keyboard Change

Has anyone had the keyboard changed on their apple MacBooks from non British layout to British layout?

the layout in Australia is different and there is no Pound key.

Here's how to change it: https://thetypingcat.com/howto/chang...ayout-mac-os-x

Alternatively, leave the layout as it is, and get the £ sign by simultaneously pressing and releasing the option key and the 3 key: https://www.webnots.com/option-or-al...s-in-mac-os-x/

I did change my keyboard as mentioned above. Now if I want £ I use Shift-3 and if I want # I use Alt-3.
