Clinical services provided:
Hearing assessment for children (0-16 years) and adults
Earwax removal via microsuction
Hearing aid prescription for children (0-16 years) and adults
Balance or dizziness assessment for children (7-16 years) and adults
Auditory processing disorder assessment for children (5-16 years) and adults

Jay is NHS trained and has a vast experience of dealing with hearing and balance issues in both children and adults. In fact, the youngest person he saw for a hearing assessment and hearing aid prescription was a two weeks old little baby; and the oldest person was a 106 years old former boxer. He considers it a privilege to be able to work with such a diverse clinical age-group, learning from the experience and helping people to have a better life at the same time.
With additional training in speech therapy and aural rehabilitation, he has an added advantage of understanding the communication issues that can arise irrespective of hearing loss. For example, he once identified a gentleman with comprehension problem known as 'receptive aphasia' who was deemed to be a poor user of hearing aid as he was not able to understand his family, even with the best hearing aids provided to him by his audiology team. This gentleman was referred to his General Physician with a note and was later diagnosed with the root cause in the brain (rather than the ears). On another occasion, he identified a specific issue known as 'wide vestibular aqueduct' in a school going girl that can cause fluctuating hearing loss, who was deemed to be 'making up' her hearing loss when she will present different hearing loss on successive tests.
Jay continuously strives to improve the professional ethics and practice in audiology. He is a member of Fitness-To-Practice (FTP) panel of the UK's regulatory body for hearing aid audiologists-Health and Care Professional Council. The panel investigates the allegations of malpractices in the hearing aid audiologists. Jay is also appointed as Professional Development Consultant for the largest organisation of independent hearing healthcare providers in UK- British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists. He is a member of the prestigious Professional Guidance Group of British Society of Audiologists, and is key author or reviewer of the national guidance produced via this group.
Jay has keen interest in academics and research. He has various national and international publications to his credit. He organises his own clinical audiology courses and is often asked to deliver lectures at various national and international conferences, seminars etc.
