What is a private hearing aid dispenser?

October 10, 2018

We are all registered by the HCPC. The licence required allows us to prescribe and sell hearing aids in the UK. It’s extremely straight-forward to program hearing aids. Be aware of anyone suggesting that they have additional qualifications.
A related BSc or MSc is of value. As is a doctorate, experience in an ENT department, experience in GP Practice in removing ear wax, or experience in a GPSI ENT practice.
I can say with great conviction that professional experience, time and patience are very important in grading successful outcomes with hearing aids.

These hearing aid reviews has been compiled by me, Robert Donnan, with a little help from our 4 main contributors (who are all patients of mine). I’m an independent private ‘hearing aid dispenser’ (HCPC registered). Hopefully, we can help debunk some over-marketing of hearing aids, and give you, the potential hearing aid consumer a better insight into the hearing aid market.
