Hearing Aid Advice And Fitting
Hearing aids can help you hear sounds better. We explain what to expect at your hearing aid consultation and how hearing aids are chosen.
Your audiologist will also perform an ear examination called an otoscopy to see whether the ear canals are free of wax and infection.
This and other middle ear conditions may mean seeing an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeon for further investigation. This can be done on the same day in the same place, because Audiology and ENT run a joint clinic and work hand in hand.
Generally, 20-30 minutes is enough time for an assessment, including any tests.
So, to help you get the best from your hearing aid, our audiologists will look at:
- What type of hearing loss you have;
- Your degree of hearing loss;
- How dextrous you are at handling smaller devices;
- The size of your ear canal and
- Whether you need one hearing aid or two.
You’ll be shown a range of premium, discreet digital hearing aids by our highly trained audiologists, many of which are not offered by the NHS. It may take a while to get used to a new hearing aid, but we’ll make sure you’re happy with the loudness and how good the fit is before you leave.
We will follow up and make adjustments until you’re satisfied with the fit. We’re flexible about when you can see our audiologists and you’ll be seen quickly.
Another bonus is that you’ll see the one audiologist each time, allowing them to get to know you and your needs and preferences.
