REPAIRS

Due to COVID-19, all open repairs clinics across all sites have been suspended for the foreseeable future. There are various options available if you have a problem with your hearing aid.


Call us on 01962 824437 and we can arrange something for you.


There are drop-boxes for faulty hearing aids available at


  • Basingstoke Hospital (to the left of the main appointments desk in the front entrance).
  • Royal County Hospital, Winchester (outside the main entrance to Outpatients).

Faulty hearing aids can be placed in here packaged up and clearly labelled with your personal details, details of the fault and how you want the hearing aid returned to you.

Audiology is the healthcare science profession that provides services for people with problems with their hearing or balance. We carry out hearing tests, provide advice about Tinnitus management, fit NHS hearing aids to adults and children, carry out diagnostic tests of Hearing and Balance function and provide Rehabilitation programmes for patients diagnosed with a Balance dysfunction.

Audiology is closely linked to the department of Ear, Nose and Throat surgery (ENT). We carry out hearing tests on patients attending ENT outpatient clinics and provide further tests of hearing and balance for ENT patients referred by the ENT Consultant.
