David Sunnucks, a Lecturer in Anatomical Sciences and Medicine, from Wolverhampton, says “Having had 27 operations so far for my hearing, I was inspired by my own ENT team to pursue a career in Medicine. My first degree in Radiography inspired me and equipped me further to pursue my dream of being a Doctor. Now, as a hearing-impaired Doctor, who wears 2 BAHAs, there have been various difficult obstacles and challenges that I have had to overcome along the way - on top of what the ‘normal’ medics go through in training. My advice is, whatever profession in the NHS, never back down - you can overcome all challenges in front of you, with support, grit and determination. And if you fail, that is ok also. It will motivate you to succeed. I am now a lecturer at St. George’s University and absolutely love my job, inspiring to the best of my ability, students in all areas, to pursue their passions, and ultimately for them to care deeply for their patients - going the extra mile. We are all patients to someone. To those struggling with their lives currently, find someone to help you through it, respect everyone, and never, ever give up. Patients and the NHS need you”. @facesofthenhs#facesofthenhs#diversity#nhs#disability#ability#doctor#medicine#radiography#lecturer#hearingimpaired#nevergiveup#overcomeobstacles#patients#livedexperience#inspire#extramile#ent
