Recent voice articles

As well as being a library for Audiology & Deafness, we also cover ENT and part of that includes voice disorders. The voice is a delicate instrument and can be easily damaged. Many people use their voices in work for long periods – singers, trainers and teachers are particularly at risk of damaging the voice. This is an article on caring for your voice from the Daily Mail, with contributions from John Rubin and Ruth Epstein, two top voice experts who are based in the RNTNE Hospital. The opera singer Lesley Garrett was recently treated here as you can read in this Daily Express story.
