What happens at a hearing test?
We offer two types of hearing test; both are free of charge and carried out by qualified Boots experts.
1. Hearing health check
A hearing health check is a free 15 minute appointment. It's ideal if you've never had a hearing test before or you have mild concerns about your hearing. The appointment includes a general check of the health of your ears and a hearing screen; where we’ll ask you to respond to a series of sounds played through headphones.
The results of your hearing health check will indicate if there are any issues with your hearing that should be explored further in a full hearing test.

At Boots we have a wide range of styles, sizes and prices which we can take you through or, even better, let you hear for yourself with a free demonstration.
