All about IHP
Local, Independent, Hearing Professionals, trusted to look after your hearing
For many years, your local, Independent Hearing Professional (IHP) has been a trusted name in your area; providing friendly, impartial advice on hearing loss, as well providing the latest technology and superior after-care and one-to-one service.
Just like your local greengrocer, post-office, or bakery, your local IHP is typically a small family-run practice or one-to-one home service, which offers unquestionable value for money, expertise and tailored hearing care. However, in a world increasingly dominated by larger retailers, with their glossy advertising and marketing tactics, it has become difficult for individual hearing audiologists to communicate their unique and beneficial services and be seen and heard.
Since 2008, a group of 60+ (and growing) qualified, Independent Hearing Professionals, with similar values and customer-focussed ethics, have got together under the ‘MyIHP’ umbrella, to sustain ethical audiology practises, and offer competitive hearing aid packages combined with the very best individual service and after-care. Some have established practices with free, or accessible, parking; others can provide an at-home hearing service. All of our Independent Hearing Professionals provide the most advanced ranges of digital hearing aids, from world leading manufacturers and offer incredible value, whatever your requirements.
