Tinnitus Support Group
The Audiology Department runs a very popular Tinnitus Support Group. The primary purpose of the group is to provide mutual support for people with tinnitus as well as their families.

Most people learn to live with tinnitus, but it can often have a significant impact on day-to-day life.For example, it can affect concentration, cause sleep problems and depression.
