Audiology Services Update
For any of our followers, families or friends who wear hearing aids,vwe have been in contact with both audiology departments in Nottinghamshire and have the following update regarding audiology services (PLEASE SHARE):
All scheduled appointments have been postponed; however, they are continuing to provide as much audiological care as possible using a non-contact approach. They are currently posting out batteries and spares, doing repairs and offering a delivery service to some places.
They are offering telephone consultations and patients, or their families can contact Audiology on 0115 9194488 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to arrange any of the above.
Things are being reviewed regularly and they are trying to access some PPE for mould appointments for babies so we will update you on this as we get it.
There is further information and some self-management advice and support on the www.entnottingham.co.uk website.
Kings mill update:
Just a reminder to all of our patients that the Audiology Department at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is still here for you, but are just working slightly differently due to COVID19.
We are offering a postal service for batteries, replacement tubes and hearing aid repairs. We are available to take your requests via telephone and can also offer advice if necessary regarding any queries you may have.
Please contact us on 01623 622515, extension 4692 or 3341.
Any hearing aids posted to us should be sent by recorded delivery, with a note explaining the problem. We will return the aid to you by post.
The website www.C2Hearonline.com has useful information for hearing aid users, including videos on how to troubleshoot problems with your hearing aids.
