Amanda Deveney (BSc RHAD)
Amanda graduated from the University of Southampton in 2015, with a degree in Audiology. She then went on to spend three years working for the NHS as a Clinical Audiologist. Amanda’s time with the NHS helped her to gain valuable clinical expertise, as well as being in a patient-focused environment while working in adult rehabilitation, tinnitus therapy and assisting the ENT department.
“As I was born with a hearing impairment, I experienced the benefits of personalised hearing care first-hand. It is the importance of continuity of care that led me to Leightons. Working with Leightons is enjoyable because I have the time to ensure all my patient's needs are met to the best of my ability. I also have the opportunity to work with and offer a wide variety of top-end hearing aid technology, as well as providing continued aftercare and support.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing netball competitively for two district teams, as well as walking my two dogs. I also have a passion for travelling and have been lucky enough to have visited Asia and Australia."
Nicola Miller (BSc)
After graduating from the University of Southampton in 2012, Nicola went straight into working for the NHS for 6 years, concentrating on adult hearing assessments and fittings. During her time with the NHS, Nicola gained a wealth of experience in the ENT department and learnt that each patient has individual needs and deserves the best in professional hearing care.
“I’ve always loved the idea of being able to spend more time with patients and The Hearing Care Partnership allows me to do just that. Having access to the best equipment and technology allows me to completely focus on the patient as an individual and take a personalised approach to their hearing care. Outside of work I spend a lot of time with my family, especially my two young children.”
