i had to visit my local g.p. recently for another complaint but took the oppurtunity to take along some posters for my local TINNITUS help group. the posters give a number to call for people that are where we have all been that dark place when you first get it and aslo help on otherT.related matters. om returning to the docs 2 weeks after i was shocked to find NO TRACE OF POSTERS! i asked at the reception about then but no one seemed to know then was told the practice manager who is responsible for posters had been off and would see to them on return, i was at docs again yesterday and STILL NO POSTERS!!!!!!!!!! is this a sign of how little importance our g.p.s take tinnitus? how little they know of its horrendous effect on peoples lives? how important it is to have someone to talk to when you first get it? or is it just the practice manager being disorganised? im really disgusted at the total lack of interest by the g.p. practice which has about10 docs in it in edinburgh north west on tinnitus!!!!!!!
