Ten million people in the UK – one in six of us – have some degree of hearing loss. It’s surprisingly tricky to spot gradual hearing loss as our brains are very good at compensating, so we’re not even aware of how much we’ve lost until things are quite far advanced. The good news is that there are things you can do to about it.
Local hearing care specialists The Hearing Care Centre, offers award winning hearing care services from 25 centres across East Anglia. This year they are celebrating their 20th year in business and they hope to continue to raise awareness about the prevalence of hearing loss, its effect on everyday life and the potential dangers of leaving hearing loss untreated.
During this event at Eye Health Centre, audiologist Karen Finch and her team will be providing complimentary hearing assessments (usually £20), along with the very best professional advice about your hearing test results and discussions about possible solutions that could help improve your hearing.
All services are available by appointment only.
