Scrivens Hearing Care now provides a brand new NHS hearing service in a number of our branches and medical centres across the country. The NHS hearing services we provide are available to patients who are eligible and have been referred by their GP.
Our free service includes:
We can even fit the majority of patients on the same day as their assessment appointment, so most people can start benefitting from clearer hearing straight away. Experience the convenience of your NHS hearing service on your local high street, in the same way you come in for an eye test and glasses.
NHS hearing aids used to be solely fitted and distributed through hospitals, but this is no longer the case. Scrivens Hearing Care’s contract with the NHS sets clear standards of clinical excellence that all providers must work to, regardless of whether you visit a hospital or a local community provider such as ourselves. We are required to provide all patients with the chance to give us feedback on the service they receive, in order for us to continue to improve the work that we do.
Scrivens Hearing Care is proud that 90% of our NHS patients rate our service as very good or excellent and 93% would recommend us to a friend or family member.

A new study suggests that wearing hearing aids for age-related hearing loss could delay the onset of dementia and slow brain ageing by eight years. There has been evidence for some time of a link between hearing loss and dementia-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, but it was not clear whether the loss was a symptom of the illness or one of the causes.
