If a patient no longer requires their hearing aids, please be advised that you can return these to us by post, or you can hand them in at your GP surgery and they will send them to us via the internal mail.

Hearing aids are NHS property and it is helpful if you return them if they are no longer used, as it is possible to recondition them.
