Ear Health

Following a procurement of adult hearing services in 2016, any hearing assessments and aids for age-related hearing loss are provided by the following providers:

  • Hidden Hearing Ltd
  • Mediscan Diagnostic Services Ltd
  • Sandwell & West Birmingham Hospital NHS Trust
  • Scrivens Ltd
  • Specsavers Hearcare Group Ltd
  • The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust
  • The Outside Clinic (Complete Price Eyeware) (Only provide a domiciliary service i.e. within the patient’s home)
  • University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust - Queen Elizabeth Hospital site only.

If you think that you need a hearing aid, then you will need a referral from your GP to access the service. It is your choice as to which provider you see. In the table below there are links to the locations of the providers to help you find the one closest to you. Please do not contact the providers directly – referral must be through your GP.

Hearing aid services provided by Heartlands Hospital

Following the procurement of adult hearing services, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (now part of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust), which includes Heartlands, Good Hope, Solihull hospitals and Community Solihull Services (HGS), no longer provide hearing aid services for age-related hearing loss. Your GP cannot refer you to Heartlands, Good Hope or Solihull hospitals.

Transfer from Heartlands Hospital

If you have received a letter from Heartlands, Good Hope or Solihull hospitals because you were previously receiving hearing aid services from Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (now part of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust), you will need to transfer to another provider or alternatively to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

To register with a new provider of your choice for your NHS hearing aids, in the first instance you need to telephone the provider using the contact details below – do not contact the stores directly. There are also links to the location of the providers to help you find the one closest to you. Once you have registered, your new audiology provider will take on the responsibility of your continued aftercare.

Please see the NHS website for general information on hearing loss.
