Batteries can also be obtained by post by sending a stamped addressed envelope (large packet) with your details to the following address: Audiology department, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Avenue, Sheriff Hill, Gateshead, NE9 6SX. 

  • You will always need to produce your record book/battery card when obtaining batteries. Someone can collect batteries on your behalf, as long as they bring your record book/battery card.
  • Batteries generally last between 10-14 days, there will be exceptions to the rule. In most cases you will hear a beeping sound to let you know that the battery needs changing.
  • If you bring your used hearing aid batteries to the QE Gateshead Audiology department we will recycle them for you.
