Paul has been an independent audiologist for almost ten years now with 25 years experience in total. He qualified in 1994 with Scrivens and gained experience working for the national chains before becoming successful enough to set up his own business. He had experience of hearing loss from a young age as his grandma was born deaf, his grandad lost most of his hearing in the war and his mother has a severe hearing loss.
Paul has expanded since he first set up, taking on a second audiologist and operating out of several clinics as well as doing home visits.
Stephen has been an independent audiologist working with Hearing Aid UK for a long time now, he first went independent and set up his own business 11 years ago after cutting his teeth with Amplifon back in 1997 and working for them as a domiciliary audiologist for over ten years. Whilst he now has three clinics he runs, Stephen still prefers the domiciliary side of things as he believes that it is much better for the aftercare to be done in a familiar environment and he spends 90% of his time doing home visits.
