DescriptionHear to Help is a service from the charity Action on Hearing Loss that provides support, advice and information to those who wear NHS hearing aids. The service can provide general maintenance of hearing aids, basic repairs, and free batteries (to patients from Queen Mary’s and St George’s hospitals). It also offers a range of information and leaflets provided by Action on Hearing Loss. The service is run by a member of staff from the charity with the help of volunteers, and can help people at home as well as in the community.

There are 6 drop in sessions once a month around the borough in these areas:
- Wandsworth Town
- Wandsworth Common
- Battersea and Clapham Junction station area
- Southfields
- Putney
- Furzedown

To find more about the drop-ins, or to ask for the service, contact Beverley Leach using the mobile number, by email, or via St George’s hospital or Queen Mary’s hospital audiology department. Anyone can refer to the service.
