New Hearing Aid Drop in Repair Clinic in Shrewsbury Library.

Shropshire RCC are delighted to announce that from March 2019 they are opening a new hearing aid drop in repair clinic in Shrewsbury Library, Castle Street.

Information, help and advice is available to all NHS hearing aid users and in addition simple hearing aid repairs, retubing and maintenance is available for wearers of NHS hearing aids supplied by
Shrewsbury or Telford Hospital Audiology department.

Drop In dates for 2019 are from 10 am-12 noon on Tuesday 19th March, followed
by monthly clinics every 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Shropshire RCC works closely with NHS Audiology to comprehensively train the
volunteers who staff this clinic. Vicky Sadler, Deputy Head of Audiology at Shrewsbury
and Telford hospital, said:

‘We can thoroughly recommend the Drop In clinic for patients who need re-tubing, advice or peer support with their hearing aids’. As most of the trained volunteers are hearing aid wearers themselves they also know from personal experience about adjusting to hearing loss. If there are multiple or more complex issues then you will be advised to contact NHS Audiology for an
appointment.

Shropshire RCC volunteers spend as much time as needed to ensure people know how to make best use of their hearing aids in all sorts of everyday situations. This support is also offered through home visits and half day Effective Hearing

Note: SDN Chair said “Now the Signal Hub, in Shrewsbury Riveside is now closed, by having this new drop in facility at central location, it will make it easier for people to get advice and information as well as the other services offered, ie re-tubing of hearing aids.
