Hi, I’m Brenda, business owner and dispenser at Vibrant Hearing. I qualified in 2006 but have had a varied career and previously worked for the Royal Institute of British Architects. After qualifying I spent time at Boots but have been an independent dispenser for 7 years.
When you first come to see me you will always be assured of a warm welcome from myself and Lynn and a brew and biccie if you fancy. Once you’re settled, I will ask questions about your hearing, where you think you might be having difficulty and how best I can help you.
The beauty of being an independent is that I am not tied to any particular manufacturer and will always be able to provide the best solution for you and there is a price range for everyone. I am the only qualified provider of Lyric in the North East of England, this is the world’s first invisible hearing aid that can be worn for months at a time – even while you sleep! On top of testing your hearing I also provide wax removal by either irrigation or microsuction and some of our local NHS GP practices are now directing people to come to us for this service. Most of the nationals do not offer home visits and if they do they will charge for it, whereas this is included as part of our service without charge. I look forward to meeting you and will endeavour to give you the best hearing experience possible.
Having lived in Florida for 23 years, Lynn returned to her roots in the North East in 2009, working for Coastal Hearing before it was purchased by Vibrant Hearing. Lynn will book your appointments, give general hearing aid maintenance advice and help you with any extras you may need such as batteries and wax guards, as well as manning the centre when Brenda is out on home visits. Always ready to greet you with a smile!
