Directors of Myers La Roche and Audiology Business Central Dominic Watson and Georgina Myers loved getting the opportunity to finally meet clients in person for the first time since the pandemic struck at the 2021 Association Of Independent Optometrists Conference in Kenilworth, Warwickshire last October 9-10,2021.

                                                                                           

Looking beyond Covid-19 trading conditions, the 3 hot topics at this years conference were the increasing trend to ditch NHS contracts and go fully private, myopia control and audiology.

A continued interest in audiology combined with more focus on private patients means that there will continue to be significant opportunities for owners of independent audiology practices in terms of both clinic partnership opportunities within ophthalmic practices and an increasing number of potential purchasers when owners begin to consider their exit plans and put their audiology practices up for sale.

With a foot firmly in both sectors, Audiology Business Central and Myers La Roche are uniquely positioned to assist.  Our vision for the future major trends in the UK’s independent audiology sector are set out in our brand-new white paper “Audiology Megatrends.”
