GPs lack tinnitus training

31st July 2007

A survey has shown that 70% of GPs have never received training on how to treat tinnitus.

The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID) survey revealed that only 30% of 500 GPs had been given any training regarding how to deal with the condition.

Brian Lamb, RNID's director of communications, said the condition could be "debilitating... this can be compounded by a lack of understanding amongst GPs who aren't always aware of how to help patients manage their tinnitus."
