Firstly, we take a detailed medical history and discuss how communication difficulties are affecting your lifestyle. The actual hearing assessment, called Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA), takes place in a soundproofed hearing booth.
If you think that you have a hearing loss and would like to talk about it with an experienced audiologist, please make an appointment for a full hearing assessment.
There is no obligation to buy and you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, learn the exact nature of your loss and consider possible solutions. The following list of questions, while not exhaustive, will provide good indication of any hearing problems. If you have answered 'yes' to three or more of these questions, we recommend an in-depth hearing assessment with one of our hearing aid audiologists. If you are experiencing hearing problems, come along to our open house event at our main practice, 3b Headgate, Colchester CO1 1NU (by appointment only). Three times a year we produce a newsletter containing news and features on the latest hearing aids, issues related to hearing and hearing loss, latest developments at the Centre and more.
You can choose to receive a paper copy of our newsletter or use the form on our 'contact us' page to request a digital PDF.
Outstanding offer on a pair of cutting-edge new Widex Unique premium hearing aids PLUS 5 years’ free warranty, batteries and aftercare. With the new Widex Unique range of hearing aids, users can truly enjoy being outdoors and hear clearly, no matter the conditions.
The event raised another ?900 towards this amazing charity and the fantastic work they do to train and support hearing dogs.
Margo Harrison, a hearing impaired recipient, came along to speak at the event, also introducing us to 'Pebbles'. Thank you to all our loyal supporters and participants for helping make this year's Golf Day another great success. We commemorated 15 years since the establishment of The Hearing Care Centre with a scrummy Champagne Afternoon Tea at the newly refurbished Colchester Castle, on 25 June. Joined by many of our longstanding clients, we also welcomed as special guests the new Mayor and Mayoress of Colchester, John and Janet Elliott, as well as Mr Don McFerran, local Consultant ENT Surgeon.
We were also delighted to have father-and-daughter duo, Roger and Ruth Montgomery, providing background music. Vicki Skeels and Nancy Usher, the Centre's marketing manager, had the honour of helping to judge last year's Colchester Business Awards. As The Hearing Care Centre has itself been the proud recipient of numerous Excellent Customer Service awards over the years, and with Vicki just finishing her reign as Colchester Business Woman of the Year, we believe we are well equipped to accurately judge this category.'Outstanding customer service is something we continually strive for at the Centre,' says Vicki, 'and we know what this requires from all parts of our business – from frontline staff right through to back-office operations.


Vicki  and Dr Ella Carmaciu (our new micro-suction specialist) with Carolina, one of our new 'patients' in Brasov, Romania. During the October 2013 half-term, Vicki and a small team of volunteers had the opportunity to visit Romania, to bring help – and hearing – to hearing impaired pensioners unable to afford hearing aids. Vicki Skeels has been appointed to the Council of the Association of Independent Hearing Healthcare Professionals (AIHHP). AIHHP is dedicated to promoting excellence within the UK hearing industry, with members providing a range of higher quality services than is found on the high street..
We are proud to have joined a new scheme, run in conjunction with Help for Heroes and hearing aid manufacturer, Phonak. As a member of AIHHP, we will provide free, state-of-the-art hearing aids to British Servicemen and women, who have been discharged from the forces due to damaged hearing in recent conflicts. A full examination of the outer ear, ear canal and eardrums is then carried out to establish medical condition. The audiologist will place eartones into your ears and ask you to respond when you hear various tones at different frequencies. If hearing instruments are recommended, we can tailor a prescription to suit your hearing loss, lifestyle and budget.
We even offer trial periods on some of our hearing aids, so you can discover just how much you may have been missing out on. Other causes include hereditary factors, prolonged exposure to noise exceeding 85 decibels (the equivalent to heavy road traffic), illness, accidents or even some medications.
A proper hearing test will determine the nature of your loss, whether you require further medical opinion and whether a hearing aid can help. It will only take a few minutes and will test how clearly you can hear in different levels of background noise. There is no substitute for a proper hearing test carried out by a trained hearing aid audiologist. Looking on are audiologist Debbie Lawrence (left), who will run the new clinic, and Carole Butterfield, manager of the Foundry Court Community Centre.
These will be run by Richard Lusher-Seaman on alternate Mondays at the Old Road Clinic, 115 Old Road, Frinton CO13 9BX. He gave an informative speech about the massive leaps forward in hearing aid technology, also praising the Centre for always keeping abreast of developments and offering the very best quality instruments on the market.
Ruth, a flautist, is profoundly deaf, but this has not stopped her carving out a musical and teaching career for herself. They had responsibility for the Excellent Customer Service category, always a hotly-contested award with the highest number of entries.


Romanian-born Dr Carmaciu is the micro-suction specialist at our Colchester and Chelmsford centres, who initiated the trip. Her dedication to her work is truly outstanding and also juggling a family has shown inspiration to others. In fact, we have already welcomed our first client, ex-paratrooper Ben Lancaster, who suffered hearing loss after being injured in an IED strike in Afghanistan. We use the video-otoscope, a tiny camera that goes into the ear and displays resulting images on a TV monitor. Included in the package is a two-year ongoing rehabilitation program, where you will be seen regularly for free ‘fine tuning’ and advice sessions. The majority of hearing loss is ‘sensorineural’, namely irreversible damage to the sound-conducting hair cells of the inner ear. Many of the recipients heard properly for the first time in decades, and their emotions often brought tears to our eyes.
The results are then plotted by computer to create your unique hearing pattern on a chart called an audiogram.
The degree of loss can range from mild to profound, and most people with hearing difficulties can benefit from using hearing instruments.
Continuing to suffer with hearing loss can significantly affect our social life and our relationships, and often leads to a feeling of isolation.
Earwax may also need to be removed for fitting of a hearing aid, or if a doctor or nurse needs to examine your eardrum. Therefore, use ear drops (such as olive oil ear drops) to soften wax 2-3 times a day for 3-5 days prior to irrigation. Therefore, see a doctor or nurse after ear irrigation if you develop any ear pain, troublesome itch in the ear, discharge from the ear, or swelling of the tissues around the ear canal (which may indicate infection). It is also not clear if regular use of ear drops does actually prevent earwax from building up. However, if you are troubled by regular plugs of earwax, you may wish to try using ear drops on a regular basis to see if this prevents the problem.
