Ear nose and throat

UH Bristol and Weston (UHBW) 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 Michael's Hospital (UHBW) 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 at.

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 A606. This department is run by ward sister Lisa Duxbury.
