Hearing aid clinic reopens in Bridgnorth

A charity has started its popular clinic for NHS hearing aid wearers in Bridgnorth.

Community Resource (formerly known as Shropshire RCC) manages eight Hearing Loss Support Hubs, which are free to attend for anyone who wears a hearing aid supplied by the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust Audiology departments.

The sessions are run by audiology-trained volunteers who provide information, advice and support on issues including hearing aid repairs, re-tubing and maintenance. The Bridgnorth clinic was previously held in the League of Friends Coffee Shop at Bridgnorth Hospital and closed at the start of the pandemic. It is now being held at Bridgnorth Library, Listley Street between 10am and noon on the first and third Tuesday of the month. Appointments must be pre-booked and can be made by calling 01743 360641 or emailing SHLS@community-resource.org.uk.

Susann Mitchell, Development Officer for Community Resource, said: “We know that a lot of hearing aid-wearers in Bridgnorth benefitted from our hubs before the pandemic, and have been anxious for them to start again. We’re excited to bring the clinic back to Bridgnorth so that people can make an appointment and speak to our volunteers, who offer expertise and insight as many have hearing loss and wear hearing aids themselves. We’d also like to thank Bridgnorth Library for kindly providing us with a space to host the clinic in the town.”

Community Resource is a Shrewsbury-based charity that helps people and communities facing challenges across Shropshire. As well as its hub, the Hearing Loss Support Service also runs free workshops giving support and advice to people wearing NHS hearing aids and their family, friends or carers.
