I’ve been wearing the NHS aids for about two years now and whilst they did a pretty good job for me for a while, I’ve been really struggling to hear at work recently. My ability to hear conversation has been gradually getting worse for a while but it has taken me a long time to realise just how bad it has got.

Finding the right audiologist as important as getting the right hearing aid

I get quite a few emails from people asking which hearing aid is best but no-one has ever asked which audiologist is best. I think the second question is just as important as the first, maybe even more so. When you buy a hearing aid you are paying for the audiologists time as well as for the hearing aid itself. The time costs more than the piece of plastic you will put in your ear and what’s really important for you is that once you’ve been

I knew from previous experiences with other suppliers that it was unlikely that they’d have a
