King's Lynn tinnitus support group gets the gold
A tinnitus support group from Lynn has become one of the first groups in the country to be awarded the Gold Standard for tinnitus support groups.
The group, led by local hearing therapist Anna Pugh, enables people with tinnitus to meet others with the condition, share useful tips on coping methods and find out what help is available.
Colette Bunker, British Tinnitus Association (BTA) volunteer and support group manager said: “A group has to meet a number of criteria to be considered a BTA Gold Standard group. These criteria are designed to ensure groups are working hard to be inclusive, encouraging peer-to-peer interaction and are providing people with accurate and up-to-date information in a safe and friendly environment.”
