The Hearing Company
 

The Hearing Company is part of the Scrivens Optical Group, which first started retailing hearing aids in the 1950s. Over the years they have developed a system of high quality professional hearing care to ensure they can meet the exact needs of their customers. They have provided audiological services to the NHS for a number of years, in addition to the eyecare and diabetic retinal screening services to the NHS and PCTs. 

 

As one of the UK’s leading High Street retailers of digital hearing aids, with over 400 outlets nationwide, The Hearing Company provide hearing care for over 150 independent retail opticians and a number of community health centres. With this experience and expertise, they can provide high quality audiology services for the NHS, giving exceptional patient care well within the 18 week target – an average of just six weeks.

Hearing Tests - What do they involve?

More people are affected by hearing loss now more than ever – in fact, one in six people have some degree of hearing difficulty. The Hearing Company recommends that people over the age of 55 have their hearing tested on a regular basis as part of their overall healthcare regime. 

 

They offer FREE in-store hearing tests with the aim to teach clients about their ears and hearing. A hearing test with The Hearing Company is simple and comprises four stages: consultation, the ear examination, the hearing test and a discussion of the results. 

 

All their services are carried out by qualified Hearing Aid Dispensers, who are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and are members of the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists. The Hearing Company conducts ongoing training and development programmes to ensure their skills remain at the highest level at all times.

Digital Hearing Aids

The Hearing Company offer a range of high-definition digital hearing aids that contain the latest, most advanced, sound processing technology to replicate as near-normal hearing as is currently possible.

 

Many digital hearing aids, especially from their top ranges, can adapt automatically to the changes in an individual’s listening environments and adjust their performance accordingly to maintain the optimum hearing experience. Other options include specific programs for telephone, outdoor (i.e. wind noise reduction) and even for listening to music.
