Before and after (wax only)

1 in 5 adults in the UK are affected by hearing loss.

There are a range of signs to watch out for which could indicate someone has an ear or hearing problem:
These can be signs that a change has occurred in their ears and they should be checked.

• Loss of hearing
• Earache
• Discomfort
• Discharge
• Ears feeling full

• Ringing
• Itching
• Loss of balance
• Dizziness
• Coughing

• Turning up the volume
• Moving closer to those talking
• Asking people to repeat themselves
• Concentrating harder than normal to listen

With the increased use of headphones, widespread use of cotton buds, and absence of preventative ear care this figure is set to rise. Whether the loss is temporary or permanent, its impact is everywhere.

The service allows images and videos from examinations to be securely sent for review by a team of audiologists and ENT specialists for additional expertise, if needed. This enables faster recommendation for further treatment solutions.

Why hearing health matters?

Good ear and hearing health is important to people of all ages and helps us to get the most out of life. When our ability to hear deteriorates it requires more energy for us to listen and participate in daily life, which can lead to becoming socially isolated as people find it harder to engage with loved ones.

Whilst it is common for certain people to attend routine health check-ups such as eye and teeth procedures on a regular basis, our ears are often left forgotten. This should not be the case. Hearing loss has huge social implications on our quality of life. Hearing loss, if left untreated, can lead to increased risk of falls, social isolation, and is also known to be the single largest modifiable risk factor for dementia.
