The British Tinnitus Association are hoping to raise awareness and help GPs to have a better understanding of the services available in secondary care, so as part of Tinnitus Awareness Week 2012 the BTA are encouraging audiology departments to:
- Put on a meeting or seminar for GPs to inform about the services available at their hospital
- Go out to GPs meetings to promote their hospital’s tinnitus service
The second and equally important part of Awareness Week will be encouraging BTA members, and indeed anyone with tinnitus or an interest in the condition, to take a copy or copies of our Ten Top Tinnitus Tips for GPs to their local surgery.
If you would like to get involved in raising awareness of tinnitus, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download our information sheets from this website and if you would be able to hold an event to raise awareness or take copies of the Ten Top Tinnitus Tips for GPs to your local surgery we would love to hear more.
If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to contact staff in the Staff Library.
The Ten Top Tinnitus Tips for GPs is available to download here.
