Tinnitus & Hearing Care Show

What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a condition where noises are heard when there is no external source, usually in the ears or in the head. This affects around 10% of the UK population and research has shown that a high proportion of tinnitus sufferers also experience hearing loss.

About the event

The Hearing Care Centre have organised a Tinnitus & Hearing Care Show to mark Tinnitus Awareness Week which is organised annually by the British Tinnitus Association. The event is free to attend and will take place on Thursday 7th February 2019 (9am-1.00pm) at Fynn Valley Terrace, just outside of Ipswich.

The event will host a series of interesting presentations and an exhibition designed to educate the public about what tinnitus and hearing loss are, how they affect us, possible solutions to help and where researchers are in their quest to find way to relieve the symptoms for tinnitus.

Who will be speaking at the event?

Headlining the event will be one of the UK’s leading experts on tinnitus Professor David Baguley of Nottingham University, David Stockdale, Chief Executive of the British Tinnitus Association, and The Hearing Care Centre’s Managing Director and lead audiologist Karen Finch.

Guests will have the opportunity to ask the experts any questions they may have at regular Q&A intervals between each talk.
Karen Finch expressed, “I’m delighted to have been able to put this event together for the people of Suffolk. Tinnitus and hearing loss affect so many people but there is still reluctance for people to seek professional help. We are very grateful to have secured the time of specialists in this field so that the public can come and find out valuable information without the pressure of going into a clinic room.”
