Our COVID procedures remain unchanged. Since the pandemic started, we have all been expected to wear masks in public spaces as part of the government regulations. As a result of the vaccination roll-out, the Government made the requirement for wearing face masks in public optional from 19th July. Our priority has always been to ensure we take measures to protect our clients and staff. We have provided more than 10,000 masks since we re-opened and gallons of hand sanitisers in our effort to provide a COVID secure environment. To date, we have not yet had updated information from our governing bodies or the Government. Our procedures remain the same but we will provide a further update should anything change.

Who are cochlear implants for?

This type of treatment is not suitable for everyone. Here’s what we’ll consider – and what you should take into account.

Everyone’s hearing loss situation is different, and a cochlear implant is not a one-size-fits-all solution. We’re certain we can help you, but also want to be sure we’re providing exactly the right care. Your suitability for a cochlear implant will be determined via a consultation with one of our expert audiologists.

angli-EAR Hearing’s Full Diagnostic Test determines how profound your hearing loss is. We’ll also investigate the root cause of your loss, assessing which section of the ear (inner, middle or outer) is functioning poorly. This knowledge helps us decide whether an implant could be beneficial.

We can also assist clients with an existing NHS cochlear implant, in need of a replacement or processor upgrade. Or, as the NHS typically only offers an implant in one ear, you may wish to have a second fitted privately. Rest assured, our experts are here for you, too.

A cochlear implant requires both a surgical procedure and therapy, to learn – or relearn – the sense of hearing. Each wearer will have different rehabilitation requirements, and it takes time to get the most from the device. It’s a commitment, but one we’d wholeheartedly recommend, where appropriate.

Many individuals have concerns about the visibility and longevity of their hearing device. If in-ear hearing aids and cochlear implants are both suitable for you, there’s a choice to be made. It may help to know that implants are exceptionally discreet, and the processor – which is worn behind the ear – can be selected to match hair colour. The internal devices last up to 25 years. That’s an excellent investment!
