Special aids to hearing


We have recently discussed the use of hearing aids.1 For many hard-of-hearing people the help given by a hearing aid is not enough, and some are not helped by an aid. The Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) booklet ‘Special Aids to Hearing’ describes devices other than hearing aids, all tested by them; it gives manufacturers’ addresses and usually prices. It also gives information on a free hearing-aid testing service in London and in Glasgow available by appointment and by post. This booklet complements the advice in the DHSS booklet ‘General Guidance to Hearing-aid Users’ which is available to patients from their local NHS hearing-aid centre.
