Duncan Collet-Fenson of Aston Hearing Services in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, has been crowned European Audiologist of the Year 2016, beating off tough competition from eight countries across Europe.
The competition judges were particularly inspired by the impact Duncan has had, and continues to have, on his patient Nicola’s life.
Nicola, who nominated Duncan for the prestigious award, said: “Duncan and his team have been there for me at every turn. My relationship with them is one of complete trust. I am very fortunate to have Duncan as my audiologist and friend and he deserves to be recognised for all his hard work and support to all his clients.”
Now in its ninth year, the Audiologist of the Year competition celebrates the exceptional work of hearing care professionals across Europe. The winner was announced at this years’ Evening of Excellence event, an annual celebration of industry achievements, hosted by Rayovac at EUHA in Hannover.
Duncan said: “I am delighted to have won the UK Audiologist of the Year and then to win the European award, it is truly unbelievable. My team and I are very excited about future opportunities to use these wonderful accolades as a platform to raise awareness to the general public and also to educate fellow healthcare providers of the importance of hearing healthcare.”
