If anyone requires hearing aid batteries or a repair they can do the following:
- Make a request by post: send the faulty hearing aid to the Audiology Department, Mountainhall Treatment Centre, Bankend Road, Dumfries DG1 4AP
- Telephone: 01387 241499
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

They can also collect batteries from the box.
