There’s no time restrictions on your consultation and the earwax removal service also includes a quick hearing health check – all for free.

Hearing Aids

The Hearing Care Partnership offers the very latest in hearing aids from the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturers. There is a huge variety in modern hearing aids so you can get the perfect aid to suit you. Some can be invisible or hidden and are incredibly discreet, while others pack a lot of technology into a tiny device so you can hear everything from chirping birds to your Bluetooth connected mobile device. Features can include rechargeable devices, Bluetooth connectivity and can even be compatible with your mobile phone (only between particular hearing aid devices and phones).

How you can Protect your Hearing

It’s not just hearing appointments that are vital but hearing protection is also important – especially if you live a busy lifestyle, enjoy live music or are showing signs of future hearing loss. The Hearing Care Partnership can offer a complete range of hearing protection services for you at R Woodfall Opticians, many of which can help protect your hearing for the future. Our specialist audiologists will be able to guide you through the different choices of hearing aids and help you to decide what best works for you.

We Offer Free Tinnitus Consultations

Tinnitus affects 6 million people in the UK alone. The condition can be referred to as “ringing in the ears” but can also sound like chirping, hissing or roaring and unfortunately, there is no known “cure” for tinnitus. However, we can talk you through how to manage it in order to continue to do all the things you love to do. Recommendations can include sound therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and even hearing aids, depending on your test results. Our tinnitus consultations with The Hearing Care Partnership are free of charge, so if it’s something you’ve been concerned about, please book an appointment and have it checked out soon.
