Jay Jindal moves on from BSHAA

After five very successful years with BSHAA, Jay Jindal has left his role with us to focus much more on his own practice and educational work. We’re incredibly sad to lose Jay but fully understand his reasons and wish him the very best for his future endeavours.

Jay took up his role as our first ever professional development consultant in 2015 and has played a huge part in strengthening our position in the wider hearing sector, as well as delivering exceptional CPD opportunities, and support, for members.

Alongside assembling world-class speaker programmes for Congress and other events, Jay has been a driving force behind our move to increased online learning, with over 50 hours of high-quality CPD delivered so far through BSHAA’s webinar programme. His work supporting our professional standards committee, developing guidance that has benefitted the whole sector, has been of immeasurable value; as have his efforts to support us in working towards a more joined-up approach to UK audiology.

BSHAA President Andrew Coulter says: “Jay has contributed so much to our work around professional development and standards. He has been a great support to me in my time on Council and as President and has become a real friend. On behalf of all members, I wish him well and thank Jay for all he’s done for the Society over the last five years.”

BSHAA chief executive Prof David Welbourn adds: “Jay has made a major contribution to the great strides made by the Society over the last few years. He will be hugely missed, both by the Society and me personally. I know that Jay will continue to make a huge contribution to audiology in the work he is now able to devote more time to.”

Jay says: "I am forever grateful to the members, BSHAA officers, Council and other sector colleagues for all their faith, support and challenges during the course of this role. It has really helped to shape my thinking around the enormous task of being the Education Adviser for BSHAA. There are so many people in the membership, BSHAA team and others who I could specially thank but there is not enough space. I really appreciate all of you for making it such an enjoyable ride for me. I have sincerely tried to do the very best for the Society and will continue to be loyal to BSHAA and audiology at large beyond this role when I take up new challenges. And so, the journey continues...”

Jay leaves BSHAA in a significantly better shape than when he took up the role. With much of his work now embedded in the way we operate, Council is taking the opportunity to look afresh at our resourcing needs to make sure the Society is well placed to build on these huge improvements.

In the meantime, members can continue to send enquiries to, which will be picked up by our professional standards committee.
