"Consultant Approved Status"
We are pleased that our efforts have been recognised by leading hearing aid manufacturer Phonak and we have been the first site to be awarded the title 'Consultant Approved Site'.
Phonak Managing Director, Stuart Neilson said: “Phonak has been a pioneer of hearing instrument development for more than 60 years. We are proud of our longstanding relationship with Holt Hearing & Balance Services and the Consultant Approved Site Programme is a way of promoting the outstanding quality service and expertise that they deliver everyday”.
Ear Aid Nepal Update
The 3rd March each year is WHO World Hearing Day. The INF Ear Services Team organised a rally, walking through the streets of Pokhara and finishing with presentations at the Ear Centre. Nearly 200 people marched with placards and banners, to publicise the needs of hard of hearing and deaf people and give educational messages. There were talks about the dangers of loud noise and other preventable causes of hearing loss. Many nursing students attended and it was great to have participation by a large contingent from a local school for deaf children, with their sign language interpreter.
Our very own Philip Holt has been to Nepal twice to support this cause and help set up the hospital. He saw patients for a number of ear related problems and soaked up the culture whilst there too. Its a beautiful place and we continue to support and partner everything they do. Visit http://www.earaidnepal.org/blog.html for up to date news on the hospital or to donate.
