Hearing-aid battery distribution

(adapted from a post on CEC website)

Due to the closure of Libraries the advice for people who require hearing aid batteries is to contact the audiology department at Lauriston Place either by phone  0131 536 1637 – open 10am – 1pm and 2pm to 4pm or email  Audiology@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk and they will send batteries out by post.

The Audiology Department advice that people either phone or email and not physically attend as they want to limit numbers of people visiting Lauriston Place as much as possible.

Individuals will get two packs of batteries for each hearing aid every four months.

If you have any queries regarding increased battery use please phone the Audiology office in 0131 536 1637.

Deaf Action on Albany Street will also have hearing aid battery supplies for NHS hearing aids

Eyre Place and Long House medical practices: proposed changes to boundaries

The medical practices at 31 Eyre Crescent (postcode EH3 5EU) and 73 East trinity Street (postcode EH5 3EL) are proposing to reduce the areas they cover. This is basically because they believe they are over-subscribed. The details are in the PDFs below. (Click the graphics to see the full-size PDFs.)

Please let us know if you have any concerns about these proposed changes, via our contact-us page.
