One in ten people in this country has tinnitus. ONE. IN. TEN. I don't have to tell you how serious it is, or how permanent. Do you know how much the government has spent - ever - on tinnitus awareness? Or prevention? Like they do with fireworks? Not a single penny.
This week is Tinnitus Awareness Week 2012 and, as ambassador for the British Tinnitus Association, I am bound to tell you that this year our focus is on GPs... there are GPs out there who really need to raise their games when it comes to this condition.
