GM-CaseRachael’s Story – Needing a Little More

I am a twin and we both started losing our hearing at three years old. I eventually got hearing aids when I was at school.

What makes me really sad is that I recently had deaf awareness training in my work and the trainer said that there were no deaf PhD students in Scotland. I want to prove to myself and to all the doctors that said we would not achieve a ‘normal’ education. In fact I have surpassed that. I graduated with first class honours after going to university as a mature student, I am just about to finish my masters in research methods and I start my PhD in social policy later this year. I plan on finishing it!

Choosing the Right System

To aid me in finding the best and most appropriate solution for my needs Gordon Morris Ltd supplied me with a demonstration kit. We then had a Skype meeting where we went through the units available and selected the best for my needs. I was then allowed to use this for a further 10 days so I could test it out in the variety of situations that it would be required for.


‘The service I received here was fabulous. The team could not have done more to help me and consistently went out their way to make sure I got what I needed from their service and support. Brilliant team and I highly recommend them. They were with me every step of the way.’
