Who should have a hearing test?

Anyone who has signs of a hearing loss. First signs can be saying pardon more often, finding that TV is too loud for others and having difficulty hearing in company.

Who will test my hearing?


Hearing Aid Audiologist of 20 years, Charles Middler. He will test your hearing, give you the results and advice. He will also check your ears for wax. You're welcome to have a friend or relative present during the test.


Can those with tinnitus wear hearing instruments?

 Almost always the answer is yes. If you have a hearing loss wearing digital hearing aids often reduces the tinnitus. Your doctor’s advice should be sought initially as to whether there are reasons not to proceed with hearing aids.


Can I try hearing instruments before buying?

Yes, a free trial of up to thirty days is available from us on most makes and types of new digital hearing aids. 


Why do people go private now that the NHS can provide digital hearing aids?

Private hearing care may be chosen for various reasons. Smaller and more discreet aids, the latest, most up to date technology, a home visiting service. Private aids can be fitted within one to two weeks following a hearing test.

If you want to find out more about the NHS hearing aid provision locally (generally free behind the ear style digital aids) the first step is a visit to your GP.

How much do digital hearing aids cost?

 A pair of discreet digital hearing aids with us usually costs between £1000 and £2000. The price will depend on the level of sophistication chosen but all our prices are very competitive and include service visits when you need us and a manufacturers' warranty of 2 to 5 years.
