Coronavirus Update

NDA Update July 2nd – Covid -19

We are pleased to confirm that our staff and volunteers continue to offer all the practical support and advice that we can, during this difficult period, as follows:

Hearing Support Service (hearing aids maintenance)

We are re-opening our hearing aid maintenance clinics, initially at Meridian Way only, as from the 23rd July 2020. The clinics will be run on appointments basis only, adhering to the current safety guidelines. Please contact us on 01603 404440 or nda@norfolkdeaf.org.uk to make an appointment and obtain the information on the safety process to be followed during the appointment.

We will continue sending hearing aid supplies where possible and whilst stock allows, provide guidance to carers or family members on how to replace the tubes, domes and batteries and in exceptional circumstances, and when possible, organise for a volunteer to carry out a ‘door step’ home visit and undertake the maintenance, following social distancing guidelines and using appropriate personal protective equipment.

Aural Care Service (ear wax removal using microsuction)

This service is running as usual for both, GP referrals and self – referrals. We are operating enhanced infection control procedures, using personal protective equipment, screening patients on arrival and stringently apply the social distancing guidelines when running our clinics. Please contact
appointments@norfolkdeaf.org.uk or ring 01603 404440 for further information/bookings and the
process to follow.
