About Us and Our Core Values

About us at Always Ear 

Always Ear was founded by Audiologists Abigail Ankers and Johanna Carter in June 2019 to provide an audiological service to the Fylde Coast and surrounding areas initially focussing on home visits.

We now have shop premises in Ansdell, Lytham Saint Annes and have expanded our services to include in shop appointments at 58, Woodlands Road since December 2020.

Abigail and Johanna have been qualified NHS audiologists for over 20 years with the same values.

We understand that it is often older people who need audiological services such as ours with further knowledge that these people may be more vulnerable.

Both of us have experienced our own grandparent’s vulnerabilities being taken advantage of by unscrupulous people. This experience has further confirmed our beliefs that it important that everyone is treated compassionately with genuine care; aiming for excellence and honesty in everything we do. Therefore, treating every individual in an ethical, empathic and friendly professional manner.


We pride ourselves in our caring and compassionate manner and will spend additional time with each person as needed.

If you are looking for a professional, reliable, honest and friendly private audiology services including Hearing Aids and wax removal please get in touch for an informal chat.
