About

Jay Jindal is a highly qualified audiologist with a doctorate degree in audiology and 15+ years of experience in NHS and independent sectors in UK.

Jay is NHS trained and has a vast experience of dealing with hearing and balance issues in both children and adults. In fact, the youngest person he saw for a hearing assessment and hearing aid prescription was a two weeks old little baby; and the oldest person was a 1065 years old former boxer.

Clinical services provided:

  • Hearing assessment for children (0-18 years) and adults
  • Earwax removal via microsuction
  • Hearing aid prescription for children and adults
  • Balance or dizziness assessment for children and adults
  • Auditory processing disorder assessment for children and adults
  • Tinnitus assessment, information and advice
  • Noise protection devices, swim/music/sleep plugs for all age groups

With additional training in speech therapy and aural rehabilitation, he has an added advantage of understanding the communication issues that can arise irrespective of hearing loss. For example, he once identified a gentleman with comprehension problem known as 'receptive aphasia' who was deemed to be a poor user of hearing aids as he was not able to understand his family. On another occasion, he identified a specific issue known as 'wide vestibular aqueduct' in a school going girl that can cause fluctuating hearing loss, who was deemed to be 'making up' her hearing loss.

Jay is a member of Fitness-To-Practice (FTP) panel of the UK's regulatory body for hearing aid audiologists-Health and Care Professional Council. He is also appointed as a Council Member for the Council of audiology professional body- British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists. He is a key author or reviewer of the national guidance produced via British Society of Audiologists (https://www.thebsa.org.uk/resources/guidance-on-the-verification-of-hearing-devices-using-probe-microphone-measurements/) and British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists (https://www.bshaa.org/updated-guidance-on-onward-referral/)

Jay has keen interest in academics and research. He has various national and international publications to his credit. He organises his own clinical audiology courses and is often asked to deliver lectures at various national and international conferences, seminars etc.
