We offer a full range of hearing assessments and supply the latest high-quality digital hearing aids for free on the NHS.
We also provide specialised rehabilitation and offer help, information and advice about ways of managing your condition such as lip-reading, other communication tactics and specialist equipment for home and work.
We may select the most appropriate location dependent on the needs of the patient and the type of assessment required as not all facilities are available at all locations. We will liaise with you to make sure the location is as convenient as possible.
Adult social care can provide support and equipment, such as TV adaptors, door bells, smoke alarms and alerting systems, to assist people with hearing impairment.

You can contact them via the access team on 0300 1234 131 or Referral.AccessTeam@cornwall.gcsx.gov.uk.
