15 Jun - 15 Jun
09:30 - 16:30
Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham

We would like to invite you to join the Board members of the British Academy of Audiology (BAA) and other Heads of Service from across the UK for a day of presentations, workshops and discussions on Wednesday 15th June.

The BAA has a lot of information we would like to share with you; but more importantly, we need to hear from you. We would like to explore key challenges and opportunities for our profession. Workforce planning and recruitment issues and opportunities, learning from a major service review, a national strategy for UK Audiology, and the future of hearing aid provision are on the agenda for the day. (Full agenda and speakers to be confirmed soon).

We are also keen to share information on what our board of volunteers and sub-committees are doing to support the Audiology profession. The relaunched Higher Training Scheme, the Mentoring Scheme, Regional Groups and training days are just some ways we can support you and your departments with education, training and development. We have a lot more to share.

But we need you, your thoughts and opinions, to ensure that our work considers your needs and that we are campaigning for the right things for NHS Audiology. Can you, a deputy, clinical lead or future leader in your team, join us on Wednesday 15th June in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham?

Free places* can be booked below, and the agenda downloaded here: Heads of Service Agenda.

We hope you can join us in June.

BAA President

*Delegate places are free, however, attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation needs. If numbers are limited, priority attendance will be given to BAA members and Audiologists working in NHS teams.
