PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO THE PANDEMIC
FULL STATEMENT HERE
If you would like to be contacted when our sessions are up and running again, please email us with your full name, postcode, and best contact details and we will be in touch as soon as we are able to resume sessions.
In the meantime, if you would like guidance to re-tube your own hearing aid, here is a short video showing you how. For a supply of new tubing please contact your Audiologist.
Did you know your hearing aid needs cleaning regularly, and needs retubing every 4-6 months?
Our NHS Hearing Aid Support Service (HASS) is at the heart of all we do.
These free walk-in sessions take place monthly in over 26 different locations and are run by our trained volunteers. At these sessions our volunteers can clean and retube your NHS hearing aid, and provide advice and guidance.
No appointment is necessary – just turn up!
Due to the variety of different hearing aids issued by the NHS in Essex, please check each venue below for details of which hearing aids we can look after at each location.
