"Using Hearing Aids"

About: Leeds General Infirmary / Audiology

(as the patient),

I was prescribed hearing aids by my GP. I was initially apprehensive about using them because of the stigma attached to weaing them and the worry of losing the small ends in my ear. After a phone call I got excellent support and reassurance from audiologist Jon Tandy at LGI. Without his support I think I would have left them unused in a drawer - a waste of health service resources and detrimental to my mental well being.

It would have been too to have up to date information about cleaning ear pieces.
