Hearing Help exists to provide practical help, information and support to the Hearing Impaired of Derbyshire and surrounding areas, to enable them to enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
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
Hearing Aid Maintenance Clinics
A Hearing Advisor is available at our various outreach clinics to retube hearing aids, supply batteries, demonstrate and advise on all the practical equipment available to improve the quality of life of hearing impaired people.
Everyone is different, but generally hearing aids need to be re-tubed every three to six months. Our clinics provide this service without need of an appointment. Due to the system currently operating within the NHS, we can only provide this service to those who received their hearing aids from Community Hearingcare Services ( formerly David Ormerod ) or who have changed their pathway through their doctor. If you have difficulty obtaining services from your current provider, please let us know and we'll do our best to help.
If you had your hearing aids from another provider or have changed pathway to another provider, they are obligated to provide your aftercare and you will need to contact them with regard to re-tubing, batteries etc.
