Phillip’s work history before becoming an Audiologist has been very varied and interesting. After joining the Intelligence Corps and serving 2 years in Germany and 4 years in NI, he led overland expeditions in Africa, South America and Asia (climbing, white water rafting, horseback safaris etc). Then worked as a Game ranger in South Africa guiding Photo Safaris in the North East Transvaal. On returning to the UK in 2000 he trained and qualified as an Audiologist.
Since qualifying, Phillip has worked for 10 years in Glasgow and has spent the last 10 years in Edinburgh. In 2008 he was invited to the inaugural session of the IDA Institute (the IDA Institute is an independent, non-profit organisation working to integrate person-centred care in hearing rehabilitation). He has been an advocate of person-centred care ever since.
“The level of expertise within House of Hearing is outstanding. In 20 years, I have not worked in an environment that has such a high level of professional and technical excellence within the practise. The large national companies I have worked for are always limited to a few manufacturers, at House of Hearing I can select the best aid for my patient from the best manufacturers in the world. I am passionate about improving peoples’ lives by maximising their ability to communicate with friends, family and colleagues.”
