Cambridgeshire Hearing Help provides NHS hearing aid maintenance services for local residents who face barriers to accessing mainstream NHS audiology services because they are older, frail, have other disabilities and/or live in rural areas.
The charity runs 43 free community-based NHS hearing aid maintenance drop-in sessions across the county. At these sessions they will clean and re-tube your NHS hearing aids, supply you with NHS hearing aid batteries, and offer information/advice about hearing loss.
