Do I qualify for digital hearing aids?

I have had NHS hearing aids, for both , ears for several years. This was due to industrial exposure to excessive levels of noise in shipbuilding. Will I qualify for digital hearing aids from Specsavers?

Answer: 

If your current NHS hearing aids are a few years old, it is likely that you are entitled to upgrade them. Go to the Specsavers website and enter your postcode to see if the scheme is available in your locality. If it is, you should contact your GP in the first instance and ask to be referred to Specsavers for a new assessment.
