can you please help with some advice, I’m a disabled man and wheelchair bound and recently had my hearing test, the outcome was that i need hearing aids but there so expensive and there’s no way on my benefits i can purchase them, so i was wondering if there’s any other way i can purchase them with being on benefits. Thank you. NC

    Hi @cripps

    The NHS provides a range of really good quality, digital hearing aids, free-of-charge. Ask your GP to refer you to your nearest NHS audiology clinic. The average waiting time is 2-4 weeks at the moment. Let us know how you get on.
