Our ENT service cares for patients with a range of routine and urgent conditions.
Our inpatient unit is based at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and this is where all operations are performed.
As well as providing a general ENT service, we also offer specialist services that treat deafness and ear disease, complex sinus problems, head and neck cancer and voice problems. Many of these conditions are managed by multi-disciplinary teams (MDTs) where ENT staff work closely with other health professionals such as pathologists, speech therapists, specialist nurses, audiologists and hearing therapists.
We work closely with our Audiology Department (Hearing Services) who offer assessments for, and fitting of, behind-the-ear digital hearing aids, treat patients with tinnitus or those requiring rehabilitation, hearing therapy, adult BAHA fitting, CROS aid fitting, cochlear implant after-fitting support and balance rehabilitation.
We have Outpatient Departments at both Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
We also offer consultant outpatient clinics with audiology support in many of the county’s community hospitals. These clinics are held in Stroud, Dursley, Cirencester, Tewkesbury, Lydney, Tetbury, Moreton in Marsh and Bourton on the Water.
Many of our clinics are managed by our specialist nursing team, mainly for patients with chronic ear conditions or for those requiring long-term care.
