Safiya Ismael (BSc RHAD)
Safiya graduated from De Montfort University in 2016 with a degree in Audiology. Safiya began her career working across both the NHS and private sectors, helping those with hearing difficulties. After spending time within the NHS, she really began to appreciate the increased amount of time she was able to spend with patients when working privately.
“Working with The Hearing Care Partnership gives me the ability to dedicate more time to my patients. This gives me the opportunity to develop a better understanding of their situation and individual requirements, allowing me to create a personalised plan tailored to their needs. I also have the time to provide continuous aftercare, maintaining a strong support system for them.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, and thoroughly enjoy baking sweet treats in my spare time.“
Shaina Mirza (BSc)
Shaina graduated from Middlesex University in June 2018 with a degree in Healthcare Science and Audiology, in conjunction with University College London. As part of her training, Shaina completed a placement at the Royal National Throat, Nose & Ear Hospital (RNTNE) in London, which gave her a wealth of experience in dealing with medically complex patients.
In her time at RNTNE, Shaina was able to develop her audiological skillset to enable her to guide individuals through their hearing journey, including bespoke follow-up guidance and care. After graduating, she also spent some time working as a locum audiologist in several different hospitals, supporting both adults and children.
Shaina joined The Hearing Care Partnership “because my passion for audiology is driven by the incredibly rewarding experience of taking the time to really work with patients individually and earn their appreciation. Effective communication and building a mutual atmosphere of trust is really important. I love the fact that we can develop a customised, comprehensive treatment plan together, and the technology available today will only help in improving people’s lives, which is very exciting!”
Outside work, Shaina enjoys travelling and baking. Alternatively, you’ll find her working out in the gym!
