Struggling with a hearing problem and feeling like just another number?  Get treated like a person again.

Have you been to your GP, received a diagnosis and still waiting for that referral appointment?

With over 11 million people in the UK suffering from a hearing complaint, its easy to see how the system can become congested.  This figure is only set to rise and with the unrelenting pressure on the NHS, it’s difficult to see how things can improve dramatically in the short term.

So is now the time to think about going private?

Private audiology practices specialise only in assessment, diagnosis, treatment and solutions for hearing complaints.  Some are independent retailers of hearing aids so can recommend, fit and service the device(s) that best suit your particular requirements.  They are also able to provide aftercare services designed to ensure you continue to enjoy the benefits your solutions provide.

Experiencing hearing loss and feeling like you’re just a number?  

There are over 900,000 severely or profoundly deaf people in the UK and 1 in 6 of the population experiences some form of hearing loss.  That’s about 11 million people so it’s easy to feel lost among this increasingly large crowd.

Around six and a half million people could benefit from using a hearing aid but as we’ve highlighting in previous posts, fitting, adjustment and support are vital to ensure users get maximum benefit from their devices.

GPs see scores of patients every day with a host of different complaints.  They understand the problems you are facing, but may not have the expertise or time to ensure you are getting exactly the care you need.

Fully registered, independent audiologists specialize in hearing loss and can commit the necessary time and resources to helping you.   Choose your audiologist and hearing clinic carefully and it could transform your life.

The Hearing Clinic UK is a completely independent specialist offering a wide variety of hearing aid solutions from the world’s best manufacturers.  Our world-leading rehabilitation programmes include provision for regular tuning and general maintenance of our patients’ hearing devices and we work hard to ensure every patient has a bespoke plan based around their lifestyle.

Experiencing hearing loss but delaying seeking advice?

You are not alone. On average it takes around 7 years for those with hearing loss to seek help!

For many people hearing loss can be gradual and can be considered manageable in the early stages. However, your hearing will deteriorate and this can begin to have a dramatic effect on your life.

Early detection can mitigate against some of the problems associated with hearing loss including fatigue, insecurity, irritability, social isolation and depression.

Some sufferers are embarrassed to admit to a problem due to the stigma attached to wearing a hearing aid but with technology moving at an incredible rate, devices can be almost completely invisible and work seamlessly with other common technologies such as smart phones.

Resound Hearing Aid by The Hearing Clinic

Currently Wearing hearing aids, but disappointed with the results?

This is an incredibly common problem among hearing aid wearers and there are a whole host of reasons for it.  Here are just a few that can contribute to wearers’ frustrations.

First of all, getting used to a hearing aid takes patience.  Your brain may have to re-learn the sounds no longer available to you without assistance and this can take time.

Resound Hearing Aid by The Hearing Clinic

Make sure your audiologist is your new best friend and work with him/her to ensure your device is professionally optimised.

Proper fitting is critical so make sure your audiologist is taking the time and care required to ensure your device fits like a glove.

If you have not had a recent hearing test, insist on this and ensure that the audiologist adjusts your devices accurately to your latest test.

Your hearing aid is a complex and delicate piece of equipment.  It needs proper care so keeping on top of cleaning and safe storage is vitally important.  Ask your audiologist about best practice.

As your brain re-learns the sounds you struggled to hear before seeking help, your device will need adjustments.  Optimizing the settings to suit your hearing ability will help to improve your everyday interactions.

You’ll need support while you’re getting used to wearing your hearing aids.  Your audiologist should offer a comprehensive aftercare plan to ensure you are able to make best use of your hearing aids and live a better quality of life.
