Does anyone on here know what types of h.a. are available on the NHS? I have an appointment next week to see an audiologist at my local hospital and enquired over the telephone whether I could have ITE (in the ear) style of h.aids, she said that the NHS do not do these, only behind the ear with tubing and I would have to get these 'privately'. I am having a lot of problems with tubing and comfort so wonder what my options are on the NHS or is this just a case of more cutbacks with the NHS as it says (on-line) contrary to this and that they 'are' available? Also, I read on-line that with different hospitals, its a case of they are available but they can't be bothered to order them in?
