An expert from the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is at the next meeting of Salisbury tinnitus support group from 1.30pm to 3.30pm Wednesday, June 5, at Salisbury Medical Practice, Fisherton House, Fountain Way, Salisbury, SP2 7FD.

The group, led by local volunteer Katy Gillingham, enables people with tinnitus to meet others with the condition, hear useful tips on coping methods, find out what help is available and hear about the latest research.

Nic Wray, BTA Communications Manager discusses the latest research looking at ways to manage tinnitus, and talking about the work the BTA does to support and drive research into the condition, which currently has no cure.

Tinnitus is defined as the experience of sounds with no external source, most commonly ringing or buzzing, but sometimes whooshing, clicking or even music. Many people aren’t troubled by sounds they hear, but for around 10%, the condition has a significant impact on their quality of life, often linked to stress, anxiety or sometimes depression.
