Presidents Message

A message from the BSHAA President.

"My mission for 2023 is to completely redefine BSHAA - creating a more modern, inclusive, and relevant member body. To achieve this, I need your support, collaboration, and shared commitment."


Robert Donnan, President

It is my privilege to introduce you to the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists (BSHAA). In doing so, I extend a warm welcome and encourage you to explore the invaluable resources and support that our organisation offers.

Hearing, as one of our precious senses, plays an indispensable role in facilitating human interaction within family, social, and work environments. It is not uncommon for individuals to encounter challenges in hearing, particularly in bustling and noisy surroundings, as they age. Unfortunately, many people tend to overlook these challenges or delay seeking help until the issues become more severe. The accumulating body of evidence underscores the profound significance of good hearing in enabling full engagement in the activities we cherish. In the majority of cases, modern hearing aids can provide a solution, helping individuals stay connected and mitigating the effects of age-related hearing loss while promoting physical and mental well-being.

BSHAA serves as the voice of registered professionals dedicated to delivering the highest quality of hearing care and finding the optimal solutions to meet your specific needs. Our members adhere to rigorous standards of professional conduct as mandated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). We also foster continuous learning, encouraging our members to strive for excellence in all facets of their work. Our code of conduct and client mediation service scheme stand as testaments to our commitment to ensuring that individuals seeking hearing care from a BSHAA member receive the utmost quality and support.

We look forward to assisting you in your hearing care journey and welcome any inquiries or requests for further information. Please feel free to reach out to us for support or guidance.


Robert Donnan, President
