We provide a full evaluation of hearing ability and listening skills, to provide advice and to support communication needs. For children, this means assessing their potential and helping them to optimise their hearing skills for nursery, school and the life ahead of them. For adults, we offer a range of technology and support to improve hearing in a variety of situations, such as family groups or listening to music.
Chear leads the field in paediatric audiology in the UK. Its founder, Dr Josephine Marriage, has a wide range of experience in clinical practice, research and teaching, which she uses to provide the very best care for people of all ages with concerns about their hearing.
