If you’re experiencing hearing loss or other hearing-related issues, you might be wondering whether to seek audiology services from the NHS or a private provider. While the NHS does offer audiology services, there are several reasons why going private may be a better option for you:


Quicker access: With the NHS, you may have to wait weeks or even months for an appointment with an audiologist. Private providers often offer more flexible scheduling and shorter waiting times, meaning you can get the help you need more quickly.

Personalized care: We have more time and resources to dedicate to each patient, meaning you’ll receive moreSignia,Phonak,Widex and Starkey hearing aids individualized attention and care. We also have access to a wider range of hearing aids and technologies.

Greater choice: While the NHS may offer a limited selection of hearing aids and other technologies, private providers often offer a wider range of options, giving you greater choice and the ability to find a device that fits your specific needs and preferences.

Higher quality care: We are able to invest in the latest technologies and training for our audiologists, ensuring that you receive the highest quality care possible.


While there are advantages to both NHS and private audiology services, going private may be a better option for those who value quicker access, personalized care, greater choice, and higher quality care. It’s important to prioritise your hearing.
