Ten million people in the UK – one in six of us – have some degree of hearing loss.
One local company is using a milestone in its history to try and help improve the hearing of those who are struggling. The Hearing Care Centre, based on Upper Brook Street in Ipswich, celebrates its 20th birthday this year, having been established by audiologist and entrepreneur Karen Finch back in 1998.
To mark the occasion Karen and her team have organised a free to attend open week at its flagship Ipswich practice between Monday 17 and Saturday 22 September. Patients with pre-booked appointments will be able to benefit from a complimentary appointment with an expert audiologist, who will conduct a full hearing assessment, offer advice and guidance based upon the results and make personalised recommendations on solutions that could help improve the patient’s hearing.
Karen was keen to point out why people should consider coming along: “We offer an informal and relaxed atmosphere for our patients to enjoy their visit with us. Our audiologists are some of the best in the country and you can rest assured that you’ll be in safe hands.”

On Thursday, September 20 (9am-5pm) The Hearing Care Centre staff will also be holding a Barking Bake Off event at their Ipswich practice in aid of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. All employees will be selling their own homemade baked goods to help get closer to the company’s £20k fundraising target for 2018.
