NHS Hearing Aid Support Service
Did you know your hearing aid needs cleaning regularly, and needs re-tubing every 4-6 months for them to continue to work effectively?
Our NHS Hearing Aid Support Service (HASS) is at the heart of all we do.

Our friendly team are on hand to assist with essential re-tubing, cleaning and general hearing aid maintenance.  If your hearing aids are due maintenance, if the tubing is brittle, cracked, blocked or damaged, please get in touch to book an appointment.  If you are unable to come to see us in person, it is possible for someone else to bring the hearing aids to the appointment on your behalf.  If you are housebound, shielding or immobile, please ask about our doorstep service.

Locations
Hearing Aid Batteries
Hearing Aid batteries can be collected from various locations across the County, depending on which hospital issued your hearing aids. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, several battery pick up locations have temporarily closed or changed, so please call us or your Audiology appointment or the Hearing Help Team to check if your nearest venue is open for battery collection. 

Please see below links for each hospital to open a PDF which lists where you can collect batteries from.

Alternatively, most hospital audiology departments in Essex provide a battery postal service. Simply post your brown book or hearing aid card to your audiology department, along with a Large Stamped address envelope (with large letter stamp).
You can also buy batteries from most chemists, supermarkets, Boots etc and also online at an average cost of £1.50 – £3 per pack, but will need to know which size battery you need.
