April 2021: CHH Hearing Aid Maintenance (HAM) Centres open for appointments.
If you are an NHS hearing aid user, or relative, friend or carer of an NHS hearing aid user, Cambridgeshire Hearing Help is pleased to announce the limited re-opening of its hearing aid re-tubing service. If your HEARING AID NEEDS CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE, we have launched a ‘drop-off and pick-up 10 minutes later’ service at nine HAM Centres located in Soham, Ely, Cambourne, Girton, St Ives, Chatteris, Fulbourn and Great Shelford.
To comply with the social distancing regulations and Covid-19 risk assessments our re-tubing process will take longer and therefore our sessions will be by appointment only. Because of these precautions we are only able to offer a ‘drop-off and pick-up 10 minutes later’ service at present. We ask that your hearing aids are handed to us in a sealed envelope labelled with your Name, Date of Birth, Postcode and contact phone number.
