We can replace batteries for your NHS hearing aid, just bring in your hearing aid card.  We can issue tubing for repairs but we cannot fit it as we are not insured.  We can no longer recycle old batteries – these are recycled via pink bags which the council provides or at the local Waitrose supermarket.  We can no longer repair hearing aids ourselves.

For technical help Action on Hearing Loss (backed by Salisbury Hospital) run a monthly hearing aid drop-in session called “Hear to Help” at Gillingham Town Hall between 10 am and 12 pm on the first Tuesday of the month.  This covers:

  • Fitting and supplying new batteries
  • Fitting new tubing to ear moulds
  • Giving advice on maintenance, use and cleaning of aid
  • Giving support and training on use of  hearing aids
  • Providing information on hearing loss, equipment and services.

The sessions do not cover hearing tests, replacement or tuning of hearing aids or adjustment of moulds.  For these you would need to contact the Hospital directly.
