Hearing aid batteries

We can replace batteries for your NHS hearing aid, just bring in your hearing aid card.  We can recycle old batteries or you can recycle them in Lidl or Waitrose stores.

Hearing aid repairs

We can issue tubing for repairs but we cannot fit it as we are not insured.  We can no longer repair hearing aids.
