Hearing Test

What can I expect when seeing an Audiologist for the first time? 

You will be greeted by one of our friendly, fully trained reception team and introduced to your Senior Audiologist who will assess the health of your ears. 

Your clinician will take a medical case history, this means asking you some questions about your general health and in particular about your ears and your hearing. They will also ask you about various hearing situations to get an idea of how your everyday life might be affected by your hearing. 

Your Audiologist will then carry out a number of tests on your hearing to find out exactly how well you are hearing. 

They will do this by presenting some sounds to you through different sets of headphones and if necessary, testing the hearing levels of each ear in isolation from the other. 

Your Audiologist will complete their comprehensive examination by checking the pressure within the ears as well as testing how well you may be hearing speech sounds in background noise.

Once completed, your Audiologist will have a full picture of how well you are hearing and be able to offer advice on the next steps. 

If we feel that we can help, and if you would like to hear better the Audiologist will discuss your options and all of the possible solutions.

Whilst there is no obligation to buy, if you feel you would like to try hearing aids, we will find the most suitable solution for you and your budget.
