About hearing appointments

What happens at a hearing appointment?

Using state-of-the-art equipment we work out which sounds the client can or can’t hear.

The client sits in a comfortable, sound-proof booth where they can only hear the sounds we are testing.

Most people with impaired hearing benefit from wearing the right kind of hearing aid.

We take the time to find out which is the best option for your hearing problem and lifestyle, then we’ll fit you with trial hearing aids so you can test them out. We are a completely independent service so you can be assured we'll recommend the right aid for you - whoever manufacturers it.

We’ll check how well the trial aids are working during your follow-up appointments and we will fine tune them or change them as required.

We’ll give you all the expert advice you need to get maximum benefits from any aids you decide to wear. We do not have an exclusive alliance to any supplier so you can be sure we will recommend the best type of aid and supplier for you.

Hearing aids make all sounds louder. We can teach you techniques which let you concentrate on the sounds you want to hear and ignore the rest.
