About audiology

Is your hearing as good as it can be?


Hearing loss can affect you at any age. In fact, 1 in 5 UK adults have some degree of loss. But this increases to 40% of over 50s, and 70% of over 70s. So the chances of developing hearing loss do increase with age. But one thing is true, no matter how old you are: recognizing the signs early will benefit you in the long term.


Hearing loss can cause you to become socially isolated and depressed, and has been linked to an increased risk of dementia.


Our hearing tests are free, quick (about an hour) and could set you on the path towards better hearing health and quality of life

Could I Benefit From A Free Hearing Test?​

Are you:

If you can relate to any of the above, you might be suffering from a hearing problem. We can help you to understand what your next steps are.

What happens when I come in for a free hearing test?

It’s really important that you bring a loved one or close friend with you. They’ll be able to take part in a familiar voice test. Assessing your hearing against a voice you already know well will help us to assess your hearing ability much more accurately.


First, we’ll ask you about your hearing concerns, lifestyle and medical history.


Then we’ll carry out an examination of your ears, to see whether there could be a visible explanation for any hearing difficulties you might be having.


You’ll then take a series of speech, tone and word tests, for some of which you’ll need to wear a set of specially designed earphones.


Finally, you’ll get your results straight away. We’ll go through them with you in detail and talk about your next steps.

How much will it cost me?

Our hearing tests are completely free.
