NHS or Private Hearing Aids?

For generations the NHS have provided hearing aids ‘free at the point of delivery.’ This option is suitable for many hearing aid users but not everyone. Increased pressures within the NHS relating to the volume of service users and budgetary constraints present new challenges to the National Health Service.

Equally there are good reasons to consider the purchase of hearing aids from our clinic. Some of the advantages to keep in mind are listed below:

  • No waiting lists
  • Personalised bespoke service
  • Choice of appointment times
  • Longer appointments
  • Choice of hearing aid styles and technology levels
  • Latest technology
  • Connectivity to mobile and tablet devices
  • Conveniently located clinic
  • Access to additional products and services

We are proud to offer FREE hearing aid trials, please visit our Free Hearing Aid Trials page for more information. If you have any queries at all about our hearing aids or would like to arrange a Hearing Assessment, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01765 278 744 or fill in the contact form on this page.

Why Choose Us?

Exemplary service. A very clear and detailed explanation of the options for new hearing aids. Much time was spent in equipping me with what was most appropriate for me. Nothing is too much trouble – great care and attention paid at every stage.

I recently attended Hear and Now, Ripon for microsuction treatment. What an excellent service on every level. Professional, courteous and thorough.. I have no hesitation in recommending them and I will certainly be using them again in the future.

Took my 99 year old mum for ear wax removal. We had a fantastic experience with all the lovely staff who definitely know their stuff! She left with much better hearing and a massive smile. She got straight back into her talking books once she returned home. Thank you so much.

I would like to thank everyone at ‘Hear & Now’ for the outstanding level of service provided to my husband. Every query was dealt with efficiently, patiently and in a professional manner. Their level of customer care is excellent and we would highly recommend them to others seeking assistance with hearing loss.
