The ENT department provides services for people with ear, nose and throat-related problems.
From diagnosis through to surgery and treatment, the department deals with both planned surgery (elective and day cases) and emergency cases. The ENT service is supported by the audiology department where routine hearing tests are performed and a hearing aid service is provided.
We aim to treat all patients within 18 weeks of being seen by their GP, in accordance with current NHS guidelines. Speak to a member of staff at your first outpatient appointment about how we compare to other hospitals in the area or visit NHS Choices.
