Repair Service

We now have a Hearing Aid Repair – Drop Box.

You can now leave your hearing aids in a drop box for us to repair. Please ensure the hearing aid is in a sealed envelope, with your name, date of birth, contact number, and a quick explanation of the problem.

The box can be found on the main corridor in the Alexandra Wing, Broadgreen.

This is a Monday-Friday service only.

Aids left before 11am will be ready to collect the same day between 2pm-3pm, or 8am-9am on subsequent days.

Aids left after 11am will be ready to collect between 2pm-3pm the next day or 8am-9am on subsequent days.

 

Appointments

Please use for Drop Box for most repairs - including retubing, general servicing and hearing aids that aren’t working.

We can provide a repair appointment for issues such as:

  • Ear mould fitting and adjustments
  • Impressions for new ear moulds

If you have lost your hearing aid please contact us and we will advise the best course of action. There may be a charge of £70 per device to get this replaced.
