Tinnitus is noises in the head and or ears. It can be a buzzing, ringing or hissing sound. For a massive 2.3 million people it is a chronic condition and The Medical Research Council reports that 3.3 million people have consulted their GP with tinnitus.
There is a great deal of research being carried out which we as a group support. With no cure yet and a bewildering array of coping strategies many people continue to suffer and not in silence.
While there is no cure for the condition it can be managed to become less distressing.
GP’s are not always well informed about the condition and all too often patients are not given the right support. Tinnitus is a neglected medical condition and in certain cases can be seriously debilitating to the point of clinical depression.

By joining the group, you will have the opportunity to talk to other members and hear positive feedback about how to cope with tinnitus. We also provide literature from the British Tinnitus Association including copies of their quarterly magazine. We can also provide details about products that may help manage your tinnitus.
Meetings generally have a speaker whose subject has some connections with health and well-being and there is always someone to advise on tinnitus issues. Followed by a cup of tea with biscuits.
