Specsavers offers a private home hearing visit service in selected parts of the country and is starting to roll out free home hearing tests too.

If you live in an area where the service is available, a Specsavers audiologist can come and visit you to carry out a thorough, professional hearing test in the comfort of your own home using the latest computerised equipment.

What happens in a hearing test at home?

Our specialist teams test your hearing, chat to you about any hearing issues you have and generally put your mind at ease.

If you do need a hearing aid, they can fit them for you and adjust them in lots of different ways. Everyone’s hearing is different and it’s important to tailor your hearing aids so that they meet your needs perfectly. You’ll have access to our aftercare package to make sure you’re fully supported on your journey with us, including a four-year warranty, a 100-day money back guarantee*, Remote Assistance and more.

*From the date of fitting.

​If you’re worried about hearing loss, you can find out more about how hearing loss might affect you or someone close to you here on our understanding hearing loss​ page.

Free home hearing tests are available if you are eligible in the following areas:

  • Lincolnshire
  • South-East Scotland
  • Greater Manchester East and parts of West Yorkshire
  • Fife, Clackmannanshire, Stirling and Falkirk
  • Coventry and parts of North Warwickshire

How do I know if I’m eligible for a free home hearing test?

  • You or a loved one might have a condition that stops you from leaving your home unaccompanied due to poor health.
  • You are living with a diagnosed mental health condition that prevents you from leaving your home without the assistance of another person.
  • You may be housebound or bedbound due to a physical disability.
  • If you live in an area where NHS-funded home hearing visits are available, your GP will need to confirm you are registered as housebound and a formal GP referral may be required.

NHS-Funded home visits

In some areas, we offer an NHS-funded home hearing service.

This includes an NHS-funded hearing test, new hearing aids, and aftercare for up to three years. These visits are subject to meeting the local eligibility criteria.

If you live in an area where NHS-funded home visits are available, you’ll need to contact your GP for a referral. In some areas, you can book directly with your store (or home visits business if there is one in your area), but you’ll need a letter from your GP confirming eligibility.

What if I'm not eligible for a free or NHS-funded home hearing test, or you don't currently service my area?
