Ear nose and throat
UH Bristol offers a comprehensive ENT service, with a
team of ten surgeons. It is a regional centre, working with The West of
England Cochlear Implant Programme and Speech and Language Therapy. We
run clinics both at St Michaels Hospital (UH Bristol) and at
Southmead Hospital (North Bristol Trust), please note that some
clinics are site specific and we are unable to offer a choice of
which hospital you are seen.
We provide a 'Nurse Treatment room' service, offering a full
range of ear treatments, which is run by a team of specialist
nurses and two advanced nurse practitioners.
We also provide a training facility for GP trainees.
If you are having surgery you will have your pre-operative
assessment in the BRI and will have your operation at either BRI or
St Michaels Hospital as we operate across both sites. Find out more.
