Daniela MonteiroDaniela Monteiro joined us in 2014 after completing her Master’s degree in occupational health and safety in her home country Portugal.

Before that she worked for six years in the ear, nose and throat department of a public hospital near Lisbon. Here she carried out the diagnosis of adults and children with different hearing tests. She also took part in newborn hearing screening.

Daniela moved to the UK to pursue her career and says working here has been a welcome challenge. “The patients are fantastic and friendly and if my patients are happy then I am happy too,” she said.

In her free time Daniela enjoys hiking and photography and volunteers at a local group.

“I have been a Scout since I was 12 and when I arrived in England I joined a local unit,” she said. “Now I am an assistant Scout leader.”
