Tinnitus and Online Appointments Research: A University College London Project Needs Your Help! - angli-EAR hearing

Our COVID procedures remain unchanged.

Since the pandemic started, we have all been expected to wear masks in public spaces as part of the government regulations. As a result of the vaccination roll-out, the Government made the requirement for wearing face masks in public optional from 19th July.

Our priority has always been to ensure we take measures to protect our clients and staff. We have provided more than 10,000 masks since we re-opened and gallons of hand sanitisers in our effort to provide a COVID secure environment.

To date, we have not yet had updated information from our governing bodies or the Government. Our procedures remain the same but we will provide a further update should anything change.

Tinnitus and Online Appointments Research: A University College London Project Needs Your Help!

You may know Samuel, one of our audiology team at the clinic. Samuel is currently studying tinnitus as part of his MSc and is looking for volunteers to help out. Sam says:

My name is Sam and I am an MSc student at University College London (UCL) learning about all things audiology.

I am part of a small two-person research team that will be investigating the experiences of those who have tinnitus and who have been given online tinnitus consultations as a result of Covid-19.

I would like to invite you to take part in this study and tell me all about your tinnitus as well as your experiences with online tinnitus healthcare. We will explore what you think worked well and what you think could be done to improve the service. We are looking for English speaking adults, over 18, who have experiences at least 1 specialist online tinnitus consultation either from the NHS or a private provider. We aim for each interview to last between 30 and 60 minutes.

We are hoping this research helps services and clinicians to understand the patient journey and perspective so that future clinical services can be improved for everyone involved in this community.

Thank you.
