Batteries for hearing aid users
- Batteries for hearing aid patients can be collected in person (by the patient or family member/friend in possession of the patient's brown hearing aid book) from the main reception desks at the Countess of Chester Hospital, Ellesmere Port Hospital or Deeside Hospital.
- Batteries can also be collected in person from Audiology reception at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
- For patients who are unable to come to the hospital or for whom it is inconvenient, there is a postal battery replacement service. Patients are required to post their brown battery book to Audiology at the Countess of Chester Hospital (address above). Please include a stamped addressed envelope (large stamp) so the hearing aid book and batteries can be posted back to you.
Replacement Hearing Aids
Hearing aids issued to patients from the Audiology Department are on long-term loan to patients and remain the property of the NHS. Should a hearing aid be lost, stolen, or damaged through neglect the patient may be liable to a charge to replace the loan hearing aid.
