Tinnitus Information Day aims to help East Anglian sufferers

The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) will be visiting East Anglia for the first time, bringing the next in their series of FREE Tinnitus Information Days to Norwich. Already more than 50% booked, the event will be held at Norwich City Football Club on Saturday 21 April 2018.

David Stockdale, Chief Executive of the BTA, said: “We know that East Anglia has a rich and varied heritage with an excellent music scene. It also had a proud industrial and agricultural heritage. We also know that excessive noise exposure is the leading cause of tinnitus. We estimate more than 600, 000 adults in the East of England experience tinnitus, and for 10% of them – that’s more than 60,000 people – it will have a serious impact on their quality of life. Through our Tinnitus Information Day, we hope that as many of these people as possible will benefit from increased knowledge of tinnitus and how to manage the condition as well as from improved local support.”

The day will feature presentations from renowned tinnitus experts including Colchester based ENT Consultant Don McFerran and Consultant Psychologist Laurence McKenna, as well as the opportunity to sample taster sessions including mindfulness, tai chi and relaxation which can help with managing tinnitus.

As the UK’s only charity solely dedicated to supporting people with tinnitus the programme aims to reduce stress, confusion, isolation, improve wellbeing and help people to cope with their condition.
