Hearing aid repair service

Our hearing aid repair service is run by our partners at Suffolk Hearing Advisory Service. If your hearing aid breaks or needs new tubes, you can either take it to any of the below drop-in services or post them to:

Suffolk Hearing Advisory Service
Suffolk House
2 Wharfedale Road
Ipswich IP1 4JP

They will then fix the hearing aid and post it back. The repair itself will normally take a few days, in addition to any postage time, so please leave plenty of time before any important events.

We offer a limited repair service at Aldeburgh Community Hospital and at Stow Lodge in Stowmarket by appointment only. To make an appointment please call 01473 703117.
