Hearing aid services closer to home

The Audiology team at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) has launched a new community-based hearing aid clinic in the Thetford Community Healthy Living Centre.

The new clinic offers a hearing aid service closer to home for patients in South Norfolk – in particular for those living in the Thetford, Watton, Swaffham, Attleborough and Diss areas.

Patients who feel they would benefit from a free NHS digital hearing aid or would like a reassessment of their current NHS hearing aid still need to be referred by their GP and should request the Thetford clinic when making an appointment via the Choose and Book system.

Dr John FitzGerald, Head of Audiological Services said “We are very pleased to offer our services from this excellent facility at Thetford, where appointments are available within days of referral by a GP.

“We hope to provide more local community sites in the coming year across our patch”.
