NESS is Hear 2 Help at Elizabeth House, Victoria Crescent, Elgin, in partnership with NHS Grampian’s Audiology department.
We can provide Hearing Aid batteries, re-tubing, support, advice and access to other NESS services.
Hearing Aid batteries
At each of our resource centres, NESS stocks a range of hearing aid batteries. If you need new batteries, drop in between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Friday. These are distributed free of charge to people who wear NHS hearing aids.
Cleaning and tubing
If you wear a Behind-the ear (BTE) NHS hearing aid with earmould, 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 Slim tube fitting for mild hearing loss' aid like this one:we are unable to replace the tubing at Elizabeth House. You will still need to attend the Audiology Clinic at Dr Gray’s Hospital.
