“My audiologist made such a difference to my life that I was suddenly able to hear things I hadn’t heard for 20 years.”

Robert Beiny was nominated by Christine who, in her entry, described how he didn’t just fit her hearing aid, he also gave her hope for the future.

In her heart-warming nomination for Robert, Christine said: “My first impression of Robert was that he was kind, sympathetic, calm, reassuring, competent and knowledgeable. Fifteen years on, I can certainly say that impression was spot on. He gave me hope. “He has managed to help me keep pace with my hearing loss (I have a severe to profound loss in both ears) by fitting me with the latest aids that might give me an edge in the hearing world. I'm never sure which of us the most excited by the latest technology!
