Salma graduated from the University of Leeds and has dedicated over a decade of her working life to NHS Audiology, both within the Adult and Paediatric sector.
Having worked for the NHS she decided to merge her experience and skills within the private sector, where she is able to offer high quality care along with high quality hearing aids.
"I decided to become part of The Hearing Care Partnership team after being drawn in by their moral ethos. I am passionate about improving the quality of life of individuals encountering hearing impairment, knowing they can place full trust and confidence in me for delivering high quality service that is tailored to suit their needs".
"Outside of work I enjoy socialising with family and friends and I love to connect to the peace within".
Mohammed first discovered his passion for audiology in his early teens, after seeing how hearing loss affected his grandad, turning what was once a very active and sociable person to someone who was becoming quite isolated. It was from seeing the impact hearing loss could have on someone’s life first hand that spurred on Mohammed and set him on the path to research how he could help.
Mohammed went on to complete a BSc at De Montfort University in Leicester, completing his training at James Paget hospital in Great Yarmouth. Following his graduation Mohammed pursued a career in the NHS, and began working at Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust. During his time there he fitted thousands of patients with a range of complex hearing losses with NHS hearing aids.
Mohammed then got a job at Newcastle NHS trust as a locum audiologist. Working very closely with very highly skilled ENT consultants, Mohammed used this time to expand his skill set and clinical expertise, performing diagnostic hearing tests from children as young as 4 years old. Following his time at Newcastle, Mohammed wanted a change to enable him to deliver the best possible treatments to his patients which just wasn’t available in the NHS. That’s when he found The Hearing Care Partnership.
“I decided to pursue work in a private setting with access to state of the art technology to allow my patients to hear as best as possible with no limitations. This is what drew me to The Hearing Care Partnership. They provide more clinical testing during their consultations than what I would do during a routine NHS appointment. It was then I realised that THCP is the right company for me.
During my spare time I like to watch football, I am a big ' Manchester United' fan. I am also an avid gym goer, I try to keep fit as much as I can, going for runs in the countryside. I also like to read books and listen to podcasts. I am very interested in other people’s life experiences and to see others’ outlook on life.”
