Having tried a few hearing aid options previously, without finding a comfortable solution, I was not expecting to get such a great resolution as I found with The Hearing Partnership in Bideford. Claire Francis was extremely knowledgeable and very keen to get to a longer term solution that worked for me, even though that meant putting up with me asking for adjustments to the type of aid in order to achieve a perfect fit. Thank you so much Claire.

After wearing NHS hearing aids for about two years , it was a delight to be able to hear all about me and listen to the radio at the same time. It is also so useful to be able to fine tune the performance. I had the most excellent service from Claire at Bridgeland Street and the after service has been excemplary . I really am most grateful to Claire and the little darlings in my ears.

Excellent visit. I went to check my hearing and was treated with empathy, care and professionalism by Claire Francis. Each part of the process was well explained and it was a very interesting experience. I didn’t need hearing aids but have every confidence that when I eventually do, that it will be a positive visit in every respect. Thank you Claire for making my first visit so positive!
