Look out for information on the Microsuction course for Nurses and Audiologists and the 2 day Microsuction Course for Associate Practitioners - both have proved to be very popular.

Chris Wins Award

You believed in me!

Our Clinical Lead for Audiology has been recognised as ‘Best Communicator’ in the Rotherham Parent Carers Forum’s ‘You Believed in Me’ Awards.

Chris Hammond-Race was presented with ‘Best Communicator’ at a special ceremony on 29 March at New York Stadium.

The Rotherham Parent Carers Forum is a charity run by, and for, families of children and young people who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). The charity asked young people and their families, living with SEND, to consider ‘who has made a difference to you’ . 

Patient and carers said:

‘During appointments Chris speaks directly to Alfie as his patient, gets on his level using language and phrases he understands such as "awesome" and “cool”.’

‘I like going to appointments with Chris ‘cos he is really funny and makes me laugh.’

Colleagues who attended the event commented: “Listening to the stories and experiences of parents of disabled children was very humbling, it was a pleasure to be there.”

Chris said: “I’d just like to say a huge thanks for the nomination, let alone winning.  It has been a huge reminder of the importance of never overlooking the patients we are seeing and why, it’s the little things that can make such a difference.”

Well done Chris!
