NHS Choices (http://www.nhs.uk
) was launched in 2007 and is the official website of the National Health Service in England.
With more than 48 million visits per month, it has become the UK's biggest health website, accounting for a quarter of all health-related web traffic.
Hearing aids are available on the NHS for anyone who needs them.
The benefits of getting a hearing aid on the NHS include:
- Hearing aids are provided for free as a long-term loan
- Batteries and repairs are free (there may be a charge if you lose or break your hearing aid and it needs to be replaced)
- You don't have to pay for any follow-up appointments or aftercare
