Hear 2 Help in Aberdeen
In partnership with NHS Grampian’s Audiology department, NESS is now HEAR 2 HELP at 21 John Street in Aberdeen
We provide: Hearing Aid batteries, re-tubing, support, advice and access to other NESS services.
Trained volunteers, many of whom have a hearing loss themselves, carry out basic hearing aid maintenance such as cleaning ear moulds or replacing tubing and batteries, to help people get the best performance from their NHS hearing aids and hear more clearly.
Cleaning and tubing
If you wear a Behind-the ear (BTE) NHS hearing aid with ear-mould, like this one, our trained volunteers, some of whom have a hearing loss themselves, will undertake basic maintenance for you, such as cleaning ear moulds or replacing tubing and batteries, to help you get the best performance from your NHS Hearing aid and hear more clearly.
Unfortunately, if you wear a tube fitting for mild hearing loss' aid like this one, we are unable to replace the tubing at John Street. You will still need to attend the Audiology Clinic at Woodend Hospital.
