PinnaClear is a premium ear care service in Manchester established by Hafiza after over a decade of NHS work, experience in training students and some research. Hafiza is also the principal audiologist and prides herself on putting patients at the centre of their care using-up-to-date equipment and offering the newest technology. She is also working closely with an ear hospital in Nepal to help provide ear care where it is needed the most.
Hearing generally starts to deteriorate at around fifty and signs include headaches due to straining to hear, having to turn the TV up louder than family and friends, difficulty hearing in background noise and mishearing words. Unfortunately, it can take people around ten years to manage their hearing loss resulting in withdrawal and isolation due to not being able to take part, particularly in social settings. Hafiza wants to make it easier for people to take action sooner by providing a comfortable clinical setting and informed choice.
