Clinics for NHS Hearing Aids at St Andrew's
Our popular free clinics for NHS hearing aids run by NHS-trained volunteers from St Andrew's have been suspended until further notice by the Diocese of Guildford due to the coronavirus restrictions, as have all other similar clinics run by Churches in the Diocese.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you.
Patients requiring NHS batteries, tubes, domes etc. can request them by email, post or phone from the hospital where the NHS hearing aid was originally issued.
When requesting by post please include your name, date of birth, and full address. If possible kindly include a self-addressed envelope with one large letter first class stamp. For battery requests please state which type of batteries you need: size 13 (colour code orange), 675 (blue) or 312 (brown). Supplies will then be posted to you.

We'll be back!
We regret not being able to meet and help our clients. Our clinic at St Andrew’s has consistently been the busiest from all those in the Diocese. In five and a half years of operation our clinic alone has satisfied 2500 visits by clients, many of whom visit us regularly. We have re-tubed over 2600 individual hearing aids and have issued well over 4000 packs of batteries.
We look forward to resuming our clinics when restrictions on group meetings and social isolation are lifted.
Best wishes to you all, from the "Hearing Aid Team" at St Andrew's.
