Tinnitus Awareness Week

2017’s Tinnitus Awareness Week is taking place from 6-12 February.

The theme this year is “Together for Tinnitus.”

The campaign ‘Together for Tinnitus’ is intended to generate discussion about tinnitus and raise awareness of the work being carried out, and the support provided by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) and other services like us across the UK.

The British Tinnitus Association will be raising awareness amongst GPs about the condition and the treatment options available, so that they feel confident to support patients who are experiencing this often distressing and debilitating condition. During the week, the BTA are launching their official ‘Tinnitus Guidance for GPs’ document which will provide the most up-to-date information on how people suffering with tinnitus can best be helped from diagnosis through to self-help management of the condition.

Please visit https://www.tinnitus.org.uk/taw2017 for more information and how you can help.
