In just 3 minutes, you can establish your ability to hear. Right now, in a group of pilot pharmacies, the latest technology has been installed to help determine whether you can hear clearly, or might be suffering from hearing loss.

The self-test hearing kiosks installed in 22 participating pharmacies will guide you through the quick, simple and accurate steps.

Once you have completed the self-test, you will be informed whether your hearing is normal, or whether you need further assessment to determine the degree of hearing loss.

The system will advise you to seek assistance from the clinic sister on duty. A more intensive test will be conducted by the Alpha Clin Clinic sister.

She will then guide you through the steps to engaging with a professional audiologist who can then determine what hearing aid system will work best for you to restore your hearing.


On World Hearing Day, Alpha Pharm’s strategic partners in the pharmacy hearing initiative; Sivantos, HearZA and the University of Pretoria managed to break the world record by conducting the most hearing tests in a single day.

The previous record was held by Australia. But the team did the country proud, helped many Soweto residents and many will soon have their hearing restored.
