Eating disorders are characterised by an abnormal attitude towards food that causes someone to change their eating habits and behaviour. A person with an eating disorder may focus excessively on their weight and shape, leading them to make unhealthy choices about food with damaging results to their health. Eating disorders include a range of conditions that can affect someone physically, psychologically and socially.
Run by Action on Hearing Loss (previously RNID) and working closely with the region’s audiology team at the Freeman Hospital, we offer a free hearing aid support service (for NHS hearing aids) on the 1st Wednesday monthly 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
Hearing aids should be re-tubed every six months or so to maintain a good quality of sound and comfort and we can give you new batteries too. This charity-run project is free (but donations are welcome of course) and is an alternative to the Hexham Hospital session if your hearing aids are just needing re-tubing – and there’s usually a shorter waiting time too!
