Today Jo had a visit from Laura Turton, Adult Audiology Manager at the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust.
Laura, was previously employed as the Operations Manager for the British Society of Audiology and is a former student of Jo’s from her NHS days.
The meeting was essentially to discuss the integrating of a private service within the Warwickshire NHS department.
Laura wanted to see how we ran our clinics here, and what we aim to offer over and above what can be provided within an NHS setting. This included the extensive range of testing and evaluating hearing aid benefit as well as talking about different products and accessories. The little extra touches such as the chandelier in the toilet and the frozen lemon slices in her drink didn’t go unnoticed too!
Jo also gleaned a lot of helpful information from Laura, particularly regarding outcome measures and different types of speech discrimination assessments.
Thanks for coming today Laura, we hope you found it useful too!
