UPDATE FROM HEARING HELP ESSEX

As we enter another difficult and challenging period with lockdown Hearing Help Essex is committed to ensuring that we keep our clients, volunteers and staff as safe as possible throughout the resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over 500 individuals access our face to face services each month, and many of our Clients are considered to be in a vulnerable group identified by the World Health Organisation. Therefore, we are once again, following Government guidelines having to take the difficult decision to cancel our drop-in sessions, home visits, and All Ears events until further notice.

Please be reassured that we continue to closely monitor the Public Health authorities guidance to ensure that we keep our service users, volunteers, and staff safe.

We are pleased to say that we are able to operate a covid-safe service for NHS Hearing Aid Cleaning and Re-tubing currently at five venues across the County. These are strictly by appointment only and we cannot accept any ‘walk-in’ service users. The venue locations are:

Hearing Help Essex Resource Centre in Central Chelmsford (All Mid, West and South Essex Patients)

St Michael’s Hospital, Braintree (Mid-Essex Patients)

Plantation Hall, Heybridge (Mid-Essex Patients)

Dipple Medical Centre, Pitsea (Basildon/Orsett Patients)

Stansted Free Church, Stansted (West Essex Patients)

Please contact us on info@hearinghelpessex.org.uk if you would like an appointment for NHS Hearing Aid re-tubing, cleaning, and basic maintenance at the Resource Centre with the following details.

Full name, address, date of birth, telephone number
Preferred day & time of appointment
How many hearing aid/s
Type of aid – mould made to fit your ear or Open Fit (small dome in the ear)
Hospital where aid/s issued
Reason for requesting an appointment.

If you would prefer to call us to discuss our telephone number is 01245 496347 or text on 07950 406173. Our phone lines are quite busy at the moment so the quickest way to contact us is via email. 

If you think your hearing needs testing, or if your hearing aids need adjusting, or you need an ear mould etc. please do contact your hospital Audiology department direct to discuss this.

As usual, our service remains completely free of charge to access, but as a small charity working hard to support residents of Essex living with hearing loss, all donations are appreciated.

Further updates will be posted on our website www.hearinghelpessex.org.uk and also on our social media channels.

WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE A TELEPHONE, TEXT, EMAIL, LIVE CHAT, AND SOCIAL MEDIA INFORMATION, ADVICE, AND GUIDANCE SERVICE TO THOSE IN NEED.
