Hearing Aid Clinic 

A FREE drop-in hearing aid clinic offering a re-tubing and replacement battery service is available across Perth & Kinross. This clinic is part of a Tayside-wide service offered by specially trained volunteers.

The volunteers are trained by NHS Tayside’s Audiology Service and can replace the tubing in ear moulds and provide replacement batteries for NHS hearing aid users. Unfortunately, volunteers are unable to re-tube open fit aids which have the thin wire with tip in ear.

It is important that hearing aid users bring along their yellow book as this is required to be produced to receive batteries.

Perth & Kinross drop-in clinics for the re-tubing of mould type hearing aids and replacement battery service are currently held at:

  • Aberfeldy & Kinloch Rannoch Medical Centre Aberfeldy, first Wednesday of every month 10am-12 noon
  • Auchterarder Library, Chapel Wynd, Auchterarder, second Thursday of every month, 10am-noon
  • Blairgowrie Library 46a Leslie Street Blairgowrie, last Wednesday of the month * except Dec 1.45pm-3.45pm
  • Crieff Community Hospital, Day Hospital Crieff, first Wednesday of every month, 1.30-3.30pm
  • Kinross Centre, 64 High Street, Kinross, first Monday of every month, 10am-12 noon
  • Pitlochry Community Hospital, first Tuesday of every month * except Jan, 10am-noon
  • Vision PK, 174 High Street, Perth, first Wednesday of every month, 10am-noon

Patient Support Service 

In partnership with NHS Tayside, VisionPK has a presence at the Low Vision Aid Clinic at Perth Royal Infirmary. Timely and individual support can be offered to individuals attending the Clinic. This service was developed in light of evidence suggesting the need for early support for people with sight loss.

Support can include:

  • Emotional support
  • Listening to concerns expressed by patients, families and carers
  • Providing information
  • Demonstrating and supplying patients with small aids
  • Referring potential and existing patients for additional support from VisionPK.
