Besides hearing tests and consultations, clients and members can also get their ear moulds made at the HCC and purchase batteries and other accessories at nominal rates.

Our staff interpreters have extensive interpreting experience in a diverse range of settings – at schools, law courts, corporate workshops, government functions among other places and events. We also have a pool of note-takers who are deployed mostly to clients studying in institutes of higher learning such as ITEs, polytechnics and universities.
