2020 Meetings

3 January

As we have welcomed more new members this month we will start with a review of what we have learnt over the last year. We will then have the opportunity to chat to new members and share experiences and tips on living with tinnitus. Please tell anyone you know who might be interested in coming along.

7 February

Our meeting falls right in the middle of Tinnitus Week 3rd – 10th February  The focus this year is on research so we will be looking at ways of raising awareness of tinnitus and campaigning for more money to be spent on finding cures.

6 March - Home Tinnitus Treatments as recommended by the BTA

We are going to look at home treatments for tinnitus as recommended by the British Tinnitus Association and sample the mindfulness CD we recently purchased for the group. Our group is about sharing information and tips so you are welcome to bring along anything you personally find useful so that we can pool our knowledge.
