What’s the Cost?

       Nothing!  At St Mark’s the service is free and available to anyone with ‘behind the ear’ NHS hearing aids supplied by the Royal Surrey and Frimley Park hospitals.  Batteries and the provision of sundry supplies is funded by your local NHS Audiology Departments in partnership with the Diocese of Guildford.

Hearing aid aftercare in the community
It takes time to adapt to using hearing aids – getting used to new sounds as well as managing the hearing aids themselves.  If you don’t keep your hearing aids maintained, you won’t be able to hear as clearly.  Taking care of your hearing aids also means it will last longer and maybe save you unnecessary trips to your audiologist.  We understand that basic maintenance tasks can be tricky, but St Mark’s Hearing Champions can help you make the most of your hearing aids.

Who are hearing Champions?

       Hearing Champions are volunteers who have been trained by NHS audiology staff in the basics of hearing aid maintenance.  In addition, volunteers from the parish churches have been trained in safeguarding matters and have had appropriate police checks.
