Ear, Nose and Throat

 The L&D has a team of six highly qualified specialist Consultants dealing with all aspects of Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) from minor procedures, such as putting in grommets to complex head and neck surgery.

They are supported by specialist nurses and healthcare professionals, all focused on ensuring that our patients have the best possible treatment and experience.

The ENT team members provide both routine and specialist clinics including some nurse clinics.  There is also a 'one-stop' clinic for diagnosis, which gives our patients the convenience of having all tests carried out in one visit.
