All processors come with a retention clip and an accessory voucher. All patients are encouraged to use a retention clip to prevent loss.
ADD PICTURE OF RETENTION CLIP
Whichever manufacturer you pick, you can only use their external equipment. Accessories do not come with your kits. Most manufacturers will provide a voucher, so that you can order one accessory. The accessory will NOT be replaced by the NHS if lost or broken. However, you can order and pay for additional accessories and replacements directly from the manufacturer of your device. The different BCHD manufacturers do not all offer the same range of fitting options.
