HELP FOR PEO­PLE WITH TIN­NI­TUS

EDP Norfolk - - The Mardler -

A new group to sup­port peo­ple in west Nor­folk with tin­ni­tus has been formed. Al­most 13,000 adults in the King’s Lynn and west Nor­folk dis­trict ex­pe­ri­ence tin­ni­tus, and for 10% of them - that’s around 1,300 peo­ple – it will have a se­ri­ous im­pact on their qual­ity of life, says the Bri­tish Tin­ni­tus As­so­ci­a­tion.

The group is be­ing fa­cil­i­tated by Anna Pugh, hear­ing ther­a­pist au­di­ol­o­gist from the Hear­ing Care Part­ner­ship. Anna says: “I’m hop­ing that the group will bring lo­cal peo­ple to­gether to share cop­ing tips and ideas with peo­ple who un­der­stand and will lis­ten. It’s im­por­tant to let peo­ple know that they don’t have to deal with their tin­ni­tus on their own.”
