As well as setting up my own hearing practice, I am most proud of becoming BSHAA president in 2016. It’s a huge honour to help steer the Society through the changes and challenges ahead for the profession. A vital part of this is to engage with members to reach an informed policy position which supports the best interests of both our members and those with hearing healthcare needs. Another aim is to engage with other audiology professional bodies to ensure a consistent voice that speaks on behalf of hearing healthcare professionals, whether they be in the private or public sector, and we’re making great strides with this. Most importantly, though, is to advocate on behalf of those with hearing loss to ensure the best hearing healthcare is delivered for them.
