Team of the Year Award – British Academy of Audiology
Congratulations to our Audiology Team for winning the award category of the British Academy of Audiology (BAA) – Audiology Team of the Year Award which was presented to staff at the BAA Annual Conference 2023.
The prestigious prize is awarded to a team that has worked together to improve the quality of audiology services in their area, showing innovative and original ideas.
In NHS Forth Valley, a wide range of work has been taken forward to reduce waiting times, improve communication across services and support local patients and their families. This has included the development of Advanced Audiology roles to help reduce ENT waiting times, the introduction of dedicated continual professional development sessions and additional training support for staff to enable them to take on new roles and responsibilities. Several members of the team are also undertaking additional advanced professional qualifications and leadership programmes to further enhance their skills and experience.
Stephanie Doody-Orr, NHS Forth Valley’s Audiology Services Manager, said: “We were delighted to receive this award which recognises the wide range of work being taken forward in NHS Forth Valley to reduce waiting times, improve communication across services and support local patients and their families.
“I am very proud of the team who worked tirelessly to keep audiology services running throughout the pandemic and have continued to drive forward a wide range of service developments and improvements.”
