The Hearing Care Partnership are delighted to announce the opening of two new clinics in collaboration with West Malling and Kings Hill Opticians, bringing comprehensive hearing care services to the area.
Located just outside of Maidstone, West Malling Opticians and King Hill Opticians are sister practices, with a one joint mantra – to provide their patients with the very best service to meet all eye care needs, no matter how big or small.
Having recently invested in an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) scanner, both practices are able to provide their patients with an even more thorough examination of their eye health.
Working alongside the practice teams to extend their offerings into hearing care is THCP audiologist Antonio Falco, who will be providing a whole range of services including free hearing assessments, the latest hearing aids, hearing protection, tinnitus consultations and ear wax removal.
Antonio has always had a passion for science, knowing from an early age that he wanted to work in healthcare. He had a particular interest in both Physics and Biology, and it was the link between these two sciences that led him towards pursuing Audiology. In 2012, Antonio decided to further his knowledge in the area and started his studies for a Bachelors degree in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology from the University of Bangalore, India.
After completing his degree and working for a year around his hometown of Goa, Antonio took the massive leap and moved to England so he could undertake a Masters degree in Audiology at the University of Southampton in 2017.
Since completing his Masters in 2018, Antonio has worked within the NHS for a number or years, allowing him to form a strong foundation in clinical audiology and, more importantly, in patient-centred care.
Antonio felt it was time to begin looking for a new challenge, somewhere he could carry on developing his skills, which is when he discovered THCP.
“Having worked within the NHS, I was looking for an organisation which holds the same key values around service and patient care as I do, and that’s when I decided to join The Hearing Care Partnership.
Outside of work I enjoy reading books on science, economics, politics and history. I am also an avid traveller and keen explorer of National Trust properties.”
