Hearing Aid Maintenance

Hi Kent

Hi Kent run hearing aid maintenance clinics in the community, aimed primarily at elderly and frail people and those who would have difficulty travelling to an audiology department.  The service is available to those people with NHS hearing aids only but is open to those people with NHS hearing aids that were fitted by a non-NHS hearing aid provider that are contracted to provide hearing aids on behalf of the NHS

Clinics are held in convenient locations in towns and villages across East Kent.  Regular sessions are held in Age Concern Day Centres, Community Centres, Hard-of-Hearing Clubs, the local Meeting Points network in the Romney Marsh area and GPs' surgeries
