Free Hearing Test

Regular hearing tests are vital because hearing can deteriorate gradually, so issues are easier to correct the sooner they’re detected. All hearing tests with The Hearing Care Partnership are thorough, personalised, carried out by expert audiologists and completely free of charge.

Our fully qualified hearing care experts offer clinical excellence with a caring, personal touch, whether you’d like a quick hearing test or a full hearing assessment. All THCP audiologists are registered with both the HCPC (Health & Care Professions Council) and the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists.

Free Full Hearing Assessment

Our free hearing assessments build a comprehensive picture of your hearing health. Hearing loss can occur very gradually and for a number of different reasons, so the sooner any possible issues can be picked up, the easier they are to correct. This helps us to give you the best possible level of care, to help you get the most out of life.

We always advise that you bring a friend or family member with you to your hearing assessment, for support and to help you gauge any improvement – a familiar voice makes this easier.

A full hearing assessment includes:

  • Discussion of your hearing and lifestyle background
  • Word discrimination and speech in noise testing
  • Full colour video otoscopy of the outer ear, eardrum and canal to explore causes of possible hearing loss
  • Pure tone audiometry to diagnose the level of any hearing loss
  • An audiogram showing your hearing ability at different frequencies
  • A report of your hearing health


You can book a full hearing assessment online here.
