We do understand - We do care - We can help
- It is estimated that more than 10 million (about 1 in 6) people in the UK have some degree of hearing impairment or deafness. Hearing loss can occur suddenly, but usually develops gradually. General signs of hearing loss can include:
- difficulty hearing other people clearly and misunderstanding what they say
- asking people to repeat themselves
- listening to music or watching television with the volume turned up high
Important Message to all of our Service Users
Community Hearing Care (formerly David Ormerod) no longer provide hearing aid services on behalf of the NHS and as our service was contracted by Community Hearing Care, as from and including 23/8/2016 Hearing Help UK will no longer be able to provide any hearing aid servicing and battery supply on their behalf.
We would like to offer our sincere apologies for the inconvenience this has created but we do hope that you understand this entire situation is totally outside of our control.
Hearing Help UK would like to reassure you that all of our other services are unaffected and are functioning as normal.
