Claire qualified as an Audiologist with first-class honours from De Montfort University, Leicester. Her training included placements at The Leicester Royal Infirmary and at The Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Alongside the London Road Clinic Consultant ENT Surgeons, Claire has established The Hearing Centre. Here she is committed to provide the very best in hearing care, conducting audiometric testing using the most up to date equipment and has access to the latest hearing aid technology. As an independent practice she has access to all hearing technologies from all manufacturers. Claire is always keen to learn and keep up to date with the fast moving world of Audiology, regularly attending national and international conferences and training academies.
As well as running The Hearing Centre and performing diagnostic hearing and balance investigations, Claire worked as a Senior Audiologist in the NHS at the Leicester Royal Infirmary for a number of years. Her time here gave her a wealth of experience with NHS hearing aids. After leaving the NHS, Claire moved to the Ear Foundation, a Charity based in Nottingham. Working with the Ear Foundation Claire worked with Cochlear Implants and Bone Anchored Hearing Aids. Within her role Claire worked as part of the Sound Advice service and established the resource centre which has given individuals the opportunity to try assistive listening devices such as telephones, Bluetooth devices, loop systems and FM Systems which they would not have previously used.
Claire’s experience has given her an excellent foundation for her private practice. By working close with the ENT Consultants she has specialised in complex hearing aid fittings. Claire has a vast amount of experience working with those with hearing loss as a result of otological factors such as: menieres disease, otoscerosis, single-sided hearing loss, tinnitus, conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. Her experience with all hearing technologies means that Claire is able to look at all options available including: invisible in the canal, receiver in the canal, behind the ear, in the ear hearing aids, bone conduction hearing aids, bone anchored hearing aids and cochlear implants.
Outside of work Claire is kept active by her little boy and enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Claire is also a keen netball player, playing in a local league.
