Professor Jaydip Ray, Clinical Director in Ear, Nose and Throat and Hearing Services and Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, has been named as one of eight new Deputy Lieutenants of South Yorkshire.
Jaydip, who has led the way on the development of a new virtual reality gaming suite to treat visual vertigo and was the first surgeon in the north of England to successfully implant a fully ‘invisible’ hearing device into the fine bones of a woman’s middle ear, was chosen for his contribution to healthcare.
Jaydip has served as expert member of the South Yorkshire Research Ethics Committee for five years, is an academic advisor to the Specialist Advisory Committee of Royal College of Surgeons and Joint Committee of Higher Surgical Training and a council member at the Royal Society of Medicine.
In October 2018 he hosted the International Implantable Acoustic Devices Conference in Sheffield.
New Deputy Lieutenant appointments support and deputise for Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire Andrew Coombe, the Queen’s representative in the county.
