Tinnitus Awareness Week

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has highlighted the importance of Tinnitus Awareness Week, which takes place from February 6-12.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr Stevenson said: “I note that the theme for this year’s campaign is raising awareness in primary care so ensuring that GPs are more aware of this debilitating condition and have a better understanding of the services available in secondary care.

“It is vital that GPs have the most up-to-date information regarding tinnitus so that they can start to manage the condition in a positive way.”

The British Tinnitus Association has a freephone confidential helpline on 0800 018 0527.
