Below is a quote from a recent Which? survey.
“Independent audiologists have been given 5 stars across the board in the Which? ‘Buying a hearing aid’ survey. With a customer score of 84%, independent audiologists were praised for their products and pricing, staff and service, and arrangements and facilities. The major chains did not fare as well, with the highest rated at 5% lower than the independent sector. Independents were also the only businesses who scored 5 stars in all of the rated categories ‘products and pricing’, ‘staff and service’, and ‘arrangements and facilities’”.
Which? also stated in their conclusions that privately purchased hearing aids were supplied in under a week, whereas the NHS provided their hearing aids in just under a month!
In a further case study, a Which? member also reported that her NHS hearing aids were amplifying background noise, such as the wind whistling. When visiting her local independent audiologist, she was able make a huge difference to her life by having the correct hearing aids programmed and fitted.
The Which? survey stated that independent businesses got five stars for their “staff and service.”
