We want to use this website as a way of communicating with all interested groups, making available information about the services we provide, the equipment we sell, with downloadable leaflets, protocols and other information.

If you have any problems finding what you want, or any suggestions about the content, please let us know. You'll find our contact details at the bottom of the page or just click the ‘Contact Us’ button in the bar at the top of the page.

Patients!

On the 1st Monday of each month we run group sessions at which patients are shown how to change their hearing aid tubing etc. If you have difficulty changing your tubing or batteries, please ring and book yourself into one of the sessions. Please note that there are no drop-in repair sessions.  For minor repairs or change of tubing - if you cannot manage it yourself - please ring or email for an appointment.
