For Your Business

The Hearing Care Partnership was founded by Leightons Opticians & Hearing Care. At Leightons, we've been delivering our renowned hearing expertise to our customers for the past ten years. During that time, we've had many requests from independent opticians practices looking for guidance and support in providing a professional hearing service.

Having carefully assessed their needs and researched the available alternatives, we've now put our considerable expertise into creating The Hearing Care Partnership (THCP), a hearing care service with a difference.

For your customers, for life

THCP is the UK's only 'optician only' hearing care company. Our highly professional clinical service connects market-leading audiology with independent optometry, and puts the customer at the heart of everything we do.

Based on a decade's expertise at Leightons Hearing Care, THCP offers the latest technology, independent insight and clinical excellence – and a personal service that's dedicated to providing the highest quality of care. We're here to help people live their lives to the full.

Here’s how it works

To put it simply, THCP offers a full audiology service within your practice. From quick hearing assessments to fully in-depth consultations, hearing aid fittings and aftersales, we provide end-to-end hearing care.

Our fully-qualified professional audiologists are employed by THCP, and work from your existing optometry testing room, or another dedicated space within your business. Most importantly, they care deeply for your customers.

We provide a dedicated store training programme to bring you up to speed before we launch, and ongoing training thereafter. And because we're always up-to-date with the very latest developments in hearing care, we're able to bring your customers a carefully curated offer from the world's most advanced hearing aid manufacturers.

THCP is a true partnership. Working together with you as one team, we grow the hearing care offer within your business – and in doing so, we aim to help you grow your optical business as well.

A world of benefits

THCP has been created by leading independent Leightons Opticians and Hearing Care, and developed solely for optical businesses, so we understand exactly what will work for you. Here are a few of the benefits of THCP to your business:
