Tinnitus Awareness Talk

The GHA’s ENT Consultant Sandro Chiti-Batelli will give a public talk on Tinnitus in order to raise awareness of the condition and provide an update on its latest research and management strategies.  

A statement from the GHA follows below:

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a common condition that affects millions of people around the  world. It can greatly interfere with patients’ daily activity and sleep, and impact their quality of  life. Hearing loss and noise exposure have been clearly identified as risk factors but as yet, in the  majority of circumstances, the cause of the ringing remains unknown. Although a definitive cure  is still not available, patients with tinnitus can benefit from several management options that span  from sound to behavioural therapies. Patients that suffer from Tinnitus and seek medical advice  should be referred by their GP’s to an ENT clinic. 

The talk is open to the public and will take place at 6:30pm on 4th October, in the Charles Hunt  Room at the John Mackintosh Hall.  

Mr Chiti-Batelli said: ‘This talk will raise awareness of tinnitus and provide an opportunity for  members of the public to learn about the latest research into the condition and the best strategies  for managing it. The talk is open and free for anyone interested to attend. I’d also like to take this  opportunity on behalf of the GHA to thank GHITA for supporting this important initiative.’
