Testimonials

Andy is an expert in his field of work, he removed ear wax that was clogged in my ear for years in about 20 seconds with no pain or discomfort. He was really nice and made me feel extremely comfortable. His services are reasonably priced as well.

Having suffered with a blocked ear on and off for months and ear drops only working temporarily I went to Andy who cleared it completely in 20 mins with suction and irrigation. Painless and no discomfort. Amazed as the clarity of my hearing now ..had to turn the TV volume down! Marvellous job, would recommend. Thanks!

Someone recomended AndyGreen to me as I have had ongoing issues with hearing and Tinnitus. I was able to make an appointment online at Friday for the following Monday. I had gone for a 2nd Opinion. Andy put me at ease, and reassured me which is what I needed. He was friendly, professional and I was happy with the service on a whole and the price was more than reasonable. I would highly recommend AndyGreen if you need help with your hearing. I would definately go again if I have any further issues.

If you are looking for independent professional advice with your hearing, and want to hear better, you have found the regions number one expert and hearing aid provider for service, choice and value. To book your hearing appointment please book online or contact us and we will arrange a clinic or home visit consultation.

Andy Green is an experienced Health & Care Professionals Council (HCPC) Registered Hearing Aid Audiologist (RHAA) and a NHS trained Earcare Practitioner who has been qualified since 2006. Andy Green is one of the regions most experienced Registered Hearing Aid Audiologists, having worked in a variety of roles which give him an unrivalled background in the industry. Andy has worked as a Hearing Aid Audiologist for the NHS and privately for Boots Hearingcare, as well as working for a hearing aid manufacturing laboratory (Starkey), supplying hearing instruments, equipment and training to the public and private sectors. This wealth of knowledge and experience underpins his philosophy of "Best Advice & Value for the client" at all times.

Andy Green Hearingcare are proud to offer the UK's 1st and only "All Inclusive" VIP Hearing Aid aftercare service, with the most comprehensive range of branded products that are all supplied with 2 or 4 years manufacturer warranty, free all inclusive VIP aftercare and an optional industry leading 5 year all inclusive warranty.

Andy Green Hearingcare is also the only UK hearing aid service offering free ear wax removal & batteries as part of our all inclusive warranty & aftercare package for ALL hearing aids. Our overall pricing is at, or below, internet pricing and all of our competitors on the high street, including; Boots, Specsavers, Amplifon & Hidden Hearing when you compare the overall costs over the lifetime of your hearing aid/s.

The private hearing aid industry has a huge choice of retailers, products and services. The following information will give you an overview of how it all works.
Much of this information can also be confirmed by looking at the Which? reports;

The Internet

You search for hearing aids and companies pop up that sell hearing aids over the internet. They may or may not be cheaper than High Street retailers depending on the product, but if you find the product you want and think its the cheapest price you have seen, you contact them and this is what you will then experience.....

It is highly unlikely that the Audiologist will be employed with the Internet company. They will be a local Audiologist the Internet company passes work on to. The price you pay will be for hearing aid/s only. You will nearly always pay extra for batteries, ear wax removal (if available) and may have a limited period for aftercare appointments before you start to incur charges. 

If you add the cost of batteries, wax removal and aftercare in the future, you will find that the initial price may not be so attractive versus ourselves who offer all inclusive aftercare free, and as we also offer a price match, contact us on 0800 246 5946 instead of risking buying off the internet (this is just our site, we are NOT an Internet retailer.)

I publish this inside information because I used to receive enquiries from one of the biggest hearing aid internet retailers. The client would then research us and find out we were generally cheaper and offered free batteries and ear wax removal and wanted to deal directly with us, so now I don't do any third party work, just direct, but will help out other Independents if (say) one of their clients relocates to this area.


Boots Hearingcare

My old employers Boots are not as independent as you may first think. They are actually 51% owned by a company called Sonova, the Swiss parent company behind Phonak, Unitron and AudioNova hearing aids. So who's products are you most likely to be offered...? 

Boots currently offer the Phonak, Starkey and Coselgi brands and AudioNova, which is a hybrid Sonova own label product range exclusive to Boots.

Boots do not offer home visits locally, have recently cut warranty periods from 5 to 4 years, extended 6 month check ups to 12 months wherever possible (doesn't sound much but that is actually halving the aftercare?), charge for batteries, charge for wax removal (if available).
If you were thinking of visiting a Boots branch, visit us instead for more choice, inclusive services and VIP aftercare 0800 246 5946

I publish this inside information because I worked for Boots Hearingcare at Doncaster, Sheffield; High St, Crystal Peaks & Queens Rd between December 2011 & February 2018. I trained their staff from 2009 to 2011 for Starkey Hearing Laboratories. The recent reductions in warranty, choice and aftercare are due to the change in strategy after former operators David Ormerod Hearingcare sold their 49% share to Boots and the hearingcare business management was taken over by Boots management.

I see a lot of my old Boots clients who contact to re-establish the patient/practitioner relationship they enjoyed whilst I was at Boots where I always received 100% customer satisfaction ratings.

There has been a high turnover of Audiologists since I parted company with Boots, leaving a lot of clients dissatisfied.

I am happy to offer ongoing aftercare to any of my old Boots clients, just round the corner in Bird Opticians on Surrey Street.

Specsavers

With 3 current branded ranges and their Advance own label range, it would seem like Specsavers offer a bit more than Boots and have a reputation for value with their never ending 2 for 1 offer. But if you know the inside track on the industry, the Specsavers business model is worthy of a closer look before you even peruse the hearing aids. 

2 for 1 falls down if you only want or need 1 hearing aid and you will end up with 2 right or left aids, which is pointless and expensive. All hearingcare branches are run by franchisees, you are effectively dealing with an individual business and not a chain of branches. Own label seems cheap and aftercare is lifetime but if you buy own label you can only go back to Specsavers and can't get a second opinion, plus the own label is made by an established hearing aid lab and is often no cheaper than a latest branded product from elsewhere. 

Their cheapest pair of branded non Advance hearing aids are £2295, that's £1000 more expensive than our cheapest branded aids, and you will also pay for home visits and ear wax removal at Specsavers when we provide these free. So for an alternative to Specsavers, see what we can offer on 0800 246 5946

I publish this inside information because I trained Specsavers Audiologists from 2008 to 2011 while working for Starkey Hearing Laboratories who manufactured a range of own label Advance hearing aids for Specsavers at that time, but have since been discontinued. I also looked into buying a Specsavers franchise at Lincoln in 2010.


Amplifon

Don't issue prices on their website where everyone else now does, but a very basic price list is available in-store. Amplifon are owned by hearing aid manufacturer GnResound. 5 price points, too basic at the bottom end and too expensive at the top end (£3,695) versus the rest of the market. Batteries and ear wax removal charged extra.

I publish this inside information because I trained Amplifon hearing aid Audiologists from 2009 to 2011 whilst working for Starkey Hearing Laboratories, who had products on the Amplifon price list at that time. 


Hidden Hearing

Owned by Demant who are the parent company of hearing aid brands Oticon and Bernafon. Hidden Hearing have hearing aids that are twice the price of what we and other providers charge. I trained with Hidden Hearing and left as soon as possible due to unrealistic pricing.


Claritas, Hearing Health & Mobility, Age UK Hearing, Sonetik at Lloyds Pharmacy have all recently gone into administration. If you need aftercare, book in to see us, you don't have to see the company they sold their databases to !
