Hospital contact numbers


Due to COVID19, the drop-in Repairs Clinics will no longer be available from Audiology Services. This is due to the limited capacity in our waiting rooms and the large numbers that attend the drop in clinics, it will no longer be safe for our patients to attend in such large numbers. Audiology services will be organising a booked repairs service in the future.

Please do not just drop into your local clinic, you will not be seen on the day, instead an appointment will be arranged. All appointments/repairs with Audiology in future will be booked.

Please be aware the NHS has zero tolerance of abuse towards staff whether this be over the telephone or in the clinic.
