Tinnitus Awareness Event

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday 7th February 2017 we will be holding a tinnitus awareness event at Starkey Hearing Technologies, Bramhall Technology Park, Hazel Grove, Stockport, SK7 5BX to mark Tinnitus awareness week.

Where: Starkey Hearing Technologies, Bramhall Technology Park, Hazel Grove, SK7 5BX
When: Tuesday 7th February 2017 from 10am-2pm

Anyone interested in learning more about tinnitus is invited to drop in for advice and information. Starkey Hearing Technologies' experts will be on hand to carry out a hearing evaluation and otoscopy which will allow you to take a look inside your ear using a small camera. There will also be advice about the benefits of using hearing protection to help protect against and manage tinnitus.

Anyone who suffers from or has a loved one affected by tinnitus is invited to pop in for a coffee and an informal chat with our friendly team. We are proud to be part of this event, which takes place during Tinnitus Awareness Week (TAW) is an annual event which is taking place from 6-12 February, run by the BTA (British Tinnitus Association).

Tinnitus is widely described as ‘ringing in your ears’. The term tinnitus is the sensation of hearing a sound in the absence of any external sound. You might hear different types of sound, for example ringing, buzzing, whooshing or humming. Tinnitus is very common and is reported in all age groups, even young children. About 30% of people will experience tinnitus at some point in their lives but the number of people who live with persistent tinnitus is approximately 10%.

Agenda for the day (10am – 2pm)
• Screening and otoscopy, so you can get an understanding of your hearing and tinnitus.
• Our experts will provide you with tinnitus information, advice and relief options. 
• Recommendations about the most appropriate noise protection for your needs.
