We Can Fit You With Free NHS Hearing Aids

Hearing loss makes it harder to socialise

NHS hearing aid waiting lists are now much shorter. We can fit you with a FREE digital behind-the-ear hearing aid within eight weeks of being referred by your doctor.

If you are struggling to hear properly it makes no sense now to delay getting help.

Hearbase Ltd is working in partnership with the NHS in Kent to reduce waiting lists for hearing aids.

Free NHS hearing aids

We have fitted thousands of people with FREE NHS digital hearing aids in the past few years. Ask your doctor for a referral to Hearbase if you live in South East Kent.

We accept referrals by letter or electronically via email to or by NHS Choose and Book.

If you choose Hearbase Ltd you may not have to visit a hospital. Hearbase Ltd is Kent’s largest independent hearing company and has clinics in high street locations. Find your nearest Hearbase NHS clinic.
