Dr Margaret du Feu
Margaret has dedicated her working life to the care of deaf and hard-of-hearing people with mental health problems. It is fair to say she has an interesting perspective to offer: a cochlear condition meant the consultant psychiatrist began to lose her own hearing in her 20s, and she is now profoundly deaf. After setting up a mental health and deafness service in Birmingham, she then moved to Northern Ireland where she did the same, before extending her work to the Republic of Ireland.
Judges’ comments: “There is absolutely no doubt that she is inspirational.”
