Caitlin Wakefield

Audiologist & Hearing Aid Consultant

It was Caitlin’s passion for helping people which led her towards a career within audiology and saw her undertake an Audiology degree, which she completed in 2015, whilst she was living in South Africa.

Whilst in South Africa, Caitlin gained valuable experience working across a number of different roles, including a tuberculosis hospital, a school for the deaf and has even been able to help develop university courses on hearing loss and child development. In 2021, Caitlin decided to relocate to England from South Africa, where she began working with paediatrics and in the field of early intervention. Before starting at Leightons in January 2022, she spent some time working for the NHS.

“I decided to join Leightons as I wanted to be in an environment that prioritises patient care, and allows me the opportunity to partner with patients to offer them the best level of service and ensure that their needs are met. I feel very fortunate that I am able to work with people to improve their connections with their loved ones.”

Outside of work, Caitlin enjoys hiking with her partner and the outdoors. She can be often found exploring new hiking trails or curled up with a good book at the weekends.
