Band 5 Audiologist

I have worked with the NHS since graduating from University. My role as an audiologist within the NHS can see me specialise in a range of fields including Paediatrics and Vestibular.

I chose to become an audiologist as I wanted to do something that would enable me to help other people. Audiology isn’t widely accepted within my cultural background therefore by becoming an Audiologist I felt I was able to give something back to my community and more importantly I was able to help provide information back to those who felt that having a hearing loss as a disability wasn’t acceptable or accepted within their cultural community.

I am passionate about looking at things in an analytical manner in order to see if there is more than one solution to a problem. I am also passionate about helping people and informing them on matters that they may not know a lot about. I enjoy working in a team or on an individual basis.

To be an audiologist one of the most important skills is to be able to communicate effectively with patients, and to be able to listen to what the patients are saying to you in order to be able to provide them with the right care.
