Crewkerne – Meet your Audiologist

Kara Butterworth (BSc MSc RHAD BSHAA) Audiologist

Kara Butterworth (BSc MSc RHAD BSHAA)

After graduating from the Birmingham School of Audiology, Kara then went on to work in the NHS for 13 years. During her time in the NHS, Kara specialised in Tinnitus and Balance rehabilitation, but was also a Clinical Lead for a team who worked with adults with learning disabilities and mental health services within Audiology. All this experience helped Kara to adopt a patient-centred approach to care, which was then implemented across the UK in various NHS Audiology departments and is now carried through into The Hearing Care Partnership.

“I joined The Hearing Care Partnership as I strongly believe in enabling patients to make informed decisions, through educating them and providing the best possible solutions. By working with The Hearing Care Partnership and their patient-centred care philosophy, I can do all these things. I am also delighted to have access to all the latest in hearing aid technology, meaning I'm able to offer my patients choice - and with all the latest diagnostic tools at my fingertips I can truly provide a person-centred solution to meet their needs.

In my spare time I am an avid book reader and can typically devour a couple of books a week!”
