More about Adult Audiology

Adult Audiology Department

Welcome to the Adult Audiology Department

We have restarted our service but with limitations due to Covid-19. We can see some patients face to face but only with an appointment. We will not be able to see any “walk-in” patients and our Open Repair clinics are no longer operating. Instead we have drop-off and collection boxes for hearing aid repairs. See more about drop-off and collection boxes plus other useful hearing aid information.

We are still available on the phone at Watford General Hospital on 01923 217646 or St Albans City Hospital on 01727 897835. Or by email at westherts.audiology@nhs.net

We can send out batteries and accessories by post.

If you are waiting for a hearing aid fitting, your information is being retained until services return to normal, then we will be in touch with you.

Information leaflets

We have also made available some leaflets that can help hearing aid wearers with their hearing aids, including inserting a battery, cleaning, insertion of earmould or corda tubing.
