* Please note this clinic is for batteries, retubing and moulds only.  We regret we are unable to repair or adjust hearings aids at this clinic. Please Contact Basingstoke Audiology Department if you need adjustments to your hearing aid.

NB. There will be no clinics running on Bank Holidays.

Patients with NHS hearing aids who have recently moved into the area and need to be registered with us should also attend a repair clinic in the first instance.  When attending for the first time please bring all your hearing aids and your hearing aid registration book.

Notes on Repairs

  • Walk-in clinics are only for existing Hampshire Hospitals NHS hearing aid users.
  • Walk-in clinics are run on a first-come first-seen basis. This means that there may be longer waits at busy times.
  • Sometimes clinics are so busy that we may not be able to see all patients. In such circumstances we may offer you a repairs appointment for the next day or so at your convenience.
  • Walk-in clinics are not suitable for most children with hearing aids, please telephone for advice first.
  • Please be aware  that time is always limited at these clinics, we plan on the basis of 5 –10 minutes per person so the clinics will not be suitable if you need a new hearing test or more time. If in doubt please telephone to book a follow-up appointment.
  • If you are unable to attend any of these clinics, you can leave your hearing aid for repair at Basingstoke, Alton, Bordon, Winchester, Andover or Eastleigh reception. Please ensure you put a note with the hearing aid describing the problem and giving details of who uses it (name, date of birth and telephone number). We will contact you when the repaired aid is ready for collection.

Batteries

Most GP surgeries are able to provide NHS hearing aid batteries, ask at your surgery as this may be much more convenient to you.

We can also supply batteries by post. Please send in your record book and enclose two first class stamps and a return addressed envelope.
