Can in-the-ear hearing aids be provided on the NHS?


Unless there is a very specific clinical reason for an individual to need in-the-ear hearing aids (such as a deformed outer ear), it is very unusual for them to be offered on the NHS. The vast majority of hearing aids fitted on the NHS are behind-the-ear models.
