Manx Care Consultant Audiologist Dr Stephen Griffiths received the Caring Arms (Inspirational Healthcare Professional) Award at the Heroes of Mann Awards 2023.

Dr Griffiths was nominated for his continuous dedication to his role, helping service users on the Island, whilst personally managing his own serious health issues after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. It was noted that he worked right up until his operation and then proceeded to carry on as normal after surgery.

As the head of Audiology services, Dr Griffiths manages Noble’s Hospital Audiology, Children’s Audiology at the Central Community Health Centre (CCHC) and the Newborn Hearing Screening Service, as well as maintaining his daily patient caseload as a Consultant Audiologist.

Dr Griffiths commented: “It is absolutely wonderful to receive such an unexpected accolade. I enjoy caring for our community even though we are a small team with a huge demand and the last couple of years have been more difficult. My life is my work and it was my choice to carry on as normal throughout my own troubles, and it was important that my team experienced as little disruption as possible. I am humbled that the audiology team and I have been recognised.”
