Trafford hearing specialist named Audiologist of the Year

Trafford General hearing specialist Greg Nassar has been named Audiologist of the Year 2014, fighting off stiff competition to become the first NHS professional to win the prestigious award.

The competition, which is run in partnership between hearing aid battery manufacturer Rayovac, publication Audio Infos Magazine and the European Hearing Instrument Manufacturers' Association relies on nominations from patients who have experienced exceptional care from their audiologist.

Greg was nominated by patient Lynn Chipperfield who expressed how Greg had gone above and beyond to ensure her daughter got the best care possible.

She said: "Greg deserves this accolade for many reasons, not least his unfailing enthusiasm for his role and his determination that his patients get the best possible care in terms of availability, access and technology. He understands how important aesthetics are to young children and that, if you get the little things right, the bigger things fall into place.

"My daughter benefitted hugely from having an audiologist with such vision.  She had sparkly pink ear moulds with 'In the Night Garden' characters in them. This gave her a sense of ownership and meant that at under two years of age, she wore her hearing aids almost constantly!"

Greg's commitment to helping Lynn's daughter overcome her unique circumstances and his consistent support, led the judges to announce him the winner.

Lynn concluded: "In short, we feel we have had exceptional service from Greg and his team at Trafford General and he is deserving of your award. He's been a very positive influence in our lives at a time when we really needed professional and knowledgeable support."

Judging is now underway to decide which of the winners from each of the participating countries will win the overall title of European Audiologist of the Year.
