HEARING loss sufferers in Droitwich can now get NHS audiology treatment at the town’s branch of Specsavers in St Andrew’s Square.
The store has been accredited to provide a local free NHS hearing service, from initial assessment through to provision of hearing aids and aftercare.
The branch is one of just 20 locations in Worcestershire which offers the service which aims to offer appointment times to see an audiologist on the NHS at a time to suit the patient.
Craig Sadler, hearing aid audiologist at Specsavers, said: “Through this contract we are able to break down barriers and encourage people to regard their hearing in the same way they do their eyesight.”
To receive treatment, patients will first need to see their GP to request a referral to their local store.
Visit the store at 10 St Andrew’s Square or call 0800 077 8659 for more information.
