Welcome to Action for Deafness

Action for Deafness is a long established charitable organisation which delivers adult audiology services on behalf of the NHS in Sussex.  

If you wish to have an NHS audiology appointment, we require a GP referral.  We will then contact you to arrange for a hearing test and hearing aid fitting appointment. This will be conducted using procedural guidance from Public Health England, NHS and the Infection Prevention Society. Strict social distancing and infection control procedures are followed at all times.  

All patients will be seen for one face-to-face appointment only. All subsequent appointments and support will be handled remotely.

If  you require replacement batteries or tubing, please send an SAE with large letter stamp to our head office: Action for Deafness, 22 Sussex Road, Haywards Heath, West Sussex RH16 4EA.  

A private audiology service is also available.

For further information please email us on: info@actionfordeafness.org.uk or call us on 01444 415582. Our lines get very busy so please email us if you can.
