It's estimated that while approximately 2 million people across the United Kingdom have a hearing aid, only 1.4 million use them on a regular basis*.
There are all sorts of factors why. People may have an old hearing aid or not have received the right assessment for their needs. They may feel that they have the wrong unit or that it hasn't been fit correctly, or they may feel uncomfortable wearing one because of its style and would rather go without.
The advancement of hearing aid technology paired with a deep assessment of your hearing capabilities makes modern units more effective than ever before, able to improve a person's overall lifestyle with hearing aids that are also compact and stylish.

One of the most common misconceptions surrounding hearing aids is that the smaller you go, the more you're likely to pay for one. Thanks to advancements in hearing aid technology, that's no longer the case.
The priority at UK Hearing Care is your hearing and improving your quality of life. They make sure that, within a chosen technology, the cost of your hearing aid is the same whether it fits behind your ear or right inside your ear canal. They'll help you choose the right hearing aid for your needs as soon as they carry out a deep assessment of your state of hearing and how to improve it.
There is no one cause of hearing loss, and no experience of hearing loss is the same. It's a very personal condition that hits people in different ways, and can range from a mild impairment to a profound loss of hearing. Regardless of the degree of hearing loss the impact on communication is more important and should always be investigated fully.
There are very tiny invisible hearing aids for early stage hearing loss and larger instruments for the more profound. Regardless of style all hearing aids are prescribed to the individual needs of the customer.
