Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)

Ear, nose and throat (ENT) covers a multitude of conditions from Meniere's and tinnitus to glue ear, nasal polyps, laryngitis and much more.

Our ENT Department provide comprehensive and specialised care covering both medical and surgical conditions related not just specifically to the ear, nose and throat, but also other areas in the head and neck region.

We deal with all aspects of ENT from minor procedures such as putting in grommets to major complex head and neck surgery for patients with cancer.

Our dedicated team provide professional and friendly health care to adults and children of all ages. The department liaises with the Speech and Language Therapy team within the hospital when necessary.

We have a Hearing Services department that looks after paediatric and adult patients who are hard of hearing. The service prescribes NHS hearing aids and runs rehabilitation programs for patients who have tinnitus and balance issues.

You can find accessibility information for ENT here.
