Because of Covid-19, many deaf people have not been able to collect new hearing aid batteries because it is not safe to go to hospitals to pick them up.
The Scottish Government aims to ensure a supply of batteries so that people have enough to see them through the lockdown (stay home).
The new arrangement is:
1) Contact your local Health Board to let them know you want new batteries.
2) Arrange with the Health Board for you either to collect from a community hub, or deliver them to your home along with your food delivery.
