Hearing Conditions

Looking after your health and wellbeing includes protecting your hearing, the same way you would look after your eyes and teeth. Our experts always recommend an annual hearing health check for anyone over the age of 50 and every two years for under 50s. A regular hearing test can help to flag up any issues with your ears and determine whether you would benefit from hearing aids or treatments to improve the quality of your hearing.
