We're really pleased to let you know that Tinnitus Week 2021 will be taking place from 1st to 7th February.

Tinnitus Week 2020 was a resounding success, kickstarting a conversation with the Government about the need to increase funding for tinnitus research. We’ll be keeping you updated with our progress on that front over the coming weeks and months, but, in the meantime, we’re excited to announce plans for the next Tinnitus Week campaign.

Tinnitus Week 2021 will run from 1st to 7th February and will tackle another important issue for people with tinnitus - accessing treatment and support from GPs.

What do we have planned?

We have a whole host of activities planned to help us understand this issue better and ensure it gets the attention it deserves, including:

  • Conducting research to find out more about GP experiences
  • Hosting a virtual roundtable event to generate ideas for how to ensure that the new National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) tinnitus guidance is used by more GPs
  • Raising awareness on social media of the impact of tinnitus, and how positive support can improve people’s experience.

How individuals can get involved?

It’s impossible to overstate how much of a difference your support makes to Tinnitus Week and we really hope you’ll get behind it again this year.

  • Complete The Big BTA Survey (which we’ll share shortly). To grab attention, we really need at least 1,000 of you to answer our questionnaire
  • Share your story of how a GP experience - good or bad - has changed your journey. If you have a story that fits, please email [email protected] 
  • Support our campaign on social media. Look out for posts in the coming weeks, and share, share, share!
  • Sign up to our e-newsletter, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

How businesses and corporate members can get involved?

  • Support our campaign on social media. Look out for posts in the coming weeks, and share, share, share!
  • Sponsorship opportunities will be available throughout Tinnitus Week. If you’re interested in supporting the BTA and promoting your business, please email [email protected]

The success of Tinnitus Week is directly linked with how many of you support it! Last year a staggering 115,000 of you got behind our campaign for more funding for tinnitus research and, as a result, we’re now in active discussions with the Government on this issue. We hope you’ll get behind Tinnitus Week 2021 just as strongly.
