NHS hearing aids

Scrivens Hearing Care now provides a brand new NHS hearing service many 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:

  • A comprehensive hearing assessment
  • Fitting of digital hearing aids (where required)
  • Ongoing aftercare support
  • A regular supply of batteries

Features of NHS hearing aids include:

  • Easy fit behind the ear
  • Small and discreet
  • Personalised fitting
  • Digital technology
  • Custom-made mould or slim tube through which the sound is delivered
  • Versatile fitting range
  • Powerful technology for more advanced hearing losses

We can even fit the majority of patients on the same day as their assessment appointment, so most people can start benefitting from better 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. Our NHS hearing aids are supplied as a Behind The Ear (BTE) style, meaning they sit behind your ear with a custom-made mould or slim tube directing the amplified sound into your ear canal.

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.
