Hearing and Sight Care - closing of centres in Thurso and Wick

20th March 2020

In light of the recent advice from NHS Highland in relation to the Coronavirus we have decided to close both of our drop-in centres in Wick and Thurso. This is an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus and keep our service users and staff safe and well.

We are however offering a postal service for issue of batteries and repairs.

If anyone needs any help please contact us via this page, by e-mail to: hsc@sensorycentre.org.uk or by telephone on 01955 606170/01847 895636.

Any face to face visits will be only in an emergency/safety situation and will be "triaged" in the first instance.

If you have any questions or need any help at all please do not hesitate to contact us.

Deirdre Aitken
Manager
