Ministry of Health information

The government has announced a four-level alert system in response to the current COVID-19 crisis. We are at level three on Monday 23 March and will be moving to level four on Wednesday 25 March.

Level 4 Government measures

  • People instructed to stay at home
  • Educational facilities closed
  • Businesses closed except for essential services (e.g. supermarkets, pharmacies, clinics) and lifeline utilities
  • Rationing of supplies and requisitioning of facilities
  • Travel severely limited
  • Major reprioritisation of healthcare services

Temporary closure of Dilworth Hearing clinics

Our clinics will be closed from Tuesday 24 March, until the government advises that we can reopen.

If you currently have hearing aids that you will need while our clinics are temporarily closed, we will be open for you to collect these on Tuesday 24 March.

We will be in contact with you to reschedule your appointment to a date in at least 4-weeks’ time in line with the government advice regarding shut-down periods. If we have not reopened our clinics at that time we can reschedule your appointment for you again.
