Airedale Hospital holds open event for tinnitus sufferers
11:00am Thursday 7th February 2013 in News
People with a condition which causes them to hear a continual noise can find out how to get help at Airedale Hospital.
The hospital’s audiology team is hosting a special open event for people who have tinnitus.
A senior audiologist will be on hand to talk about the team’s tinnitus clinics and to answer questions and give out information.
The drop-in session takes place tomorrow from 1.30pm to 4pm in the audiology department. It coincides with Tinnitus Awareness Week, which is run by the British Tinnitus Association.
Senior audiologist Katie Davenport said: “Providing patients with information and support about tinnitus can really make a difference to people’s lives, and we try to help them live and cope with their tinnitus and dispel any negative associations.
“It must be very difficult to cope with never being able to enjoy silence, and the worst time is usually at night when there is a lack of other noise.”
