Hearing and hearing loss

Hearing is an important sense and, compared to our eyesight, one many of us know little about. In this section of the website we provide information and practical advice to help you learn more about your hearing.

You’ll find information on how our ears work and how hearing loss occurs, along with some great tips to help look after your hearing.

In about hearing loss we describe what can go wrong in the ear that affects how well we hear. We explain the different types of hearing loss and the treatments available.

There’s also information on spotting the early signs of hearing loss; so whether you’re concerned about your own hearing or that of a friend or family member you know what to look out for.
