Find out about the latest hearing accessories:
The trust's paediatric audiology department offers the latest hearing aid accessories for adults and children, at a small cost that covers the product and the expert knowledge required to link these devices successfully to hearing aids.
The trust's range of wireless/Bluetooth hearing aid accessories are designed for use with MP3 players, handheld games, mobile phones, tablets/computers, and TV – and stream sound directly from these electronic devices to compatible hearing aids, with the sound automatically adjusted for the patient's hearing loss.
Paediatric audiology experts from the trust will be on hand at the event to demonstrate the advantages and potential of these new products, and to discuss the difference they can make to children and adults who wear hearing aids – or to answer any questions you may have.
Ear plugs products:
Members of the audiology team will be showcasing the trust's range of bespoke ear plug/ear mould products, which are custom made and moulded to the shape of the patient's ear.
