Do you know if In The Ear hearing aids are available from the NHS?
Answered by Geoffrey Cooling
The NHS does not offer all the hearing aid types that are available privately. They don't provide ITE or In The Ear hearing aids. The hearing aid styles available from the NHS include Behind The Ear hearing aids, bone anchored hearing aids, Receiver In Canal hearing aids, and CROS and BiCROS hearing aids.
The hearing aids available from the NHS are slightly older than the latest hearing aids available. They also don't have all of the latest features. If you want custom hearing aids in the UK, you need to go private.
