South East Hearing Care Centres is proud to be a member of the AIHHP (Association of Independent Hearing Healthcare Professionals) and have been for over 20 years.
AIHHP is a group of leading hearing aid audiologists, who are committed to promoting and maintaining the very highest professional and ethical standards in hearing healthcare provision, within the private sector. The strict Code of Practice has standards that exceed those required of other hearing care centres.
The core foundation and aim of the AIHHP is to ensure the highest quality and professional care for patients who need hearing care in the private sector. They follow a code of ethical standards that each member must also uphold, ensuring the welfare of the patient is the highest priority.
Membership is by invitation only. It is applicable only to fully qualified independent hearing aid audiologists operating full time centres, dedicated to serving the needs of the hearing impaired of all ages.
By accepting the responsibility of membership, each practitioner has agreed to deliver an exemplary, unbiased service in:
- Audiological assessment
- Independent advice
- Expert fitting of hearing instruments
- The security of quality long-term aftercare
Mandatory ongoing training programmes in new technology ensure that patients can confidently receive the most up-to-date help available.
AIHHP is recognised by the Government and is amongst those consulted during national policy changes in hearing healthcare. AIHHP members do not represent any one particular hearing aid company – they can choose from the world’s leading manufacturers to recommend the exact products to meet individual hearing needs.
We’re proud to be able to offer a full range of hearing aid brands for your needs. This includes Signia, Oticon, ReSound, Widex, Unitron and Phonak, with us being one of the only hearing centres in the south east to offer the Phonak Lyric 100% invisible hearing aid.
