The department covers all aspects of Ear, Nose & Throat disorders. It offers an IOG centre for head and neck cancers and treats benign and malignant conditions.
Referrals are accepted via E-RS only.
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.

To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, we are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are receiving palliative treatment at the end of their lives, on a case-by-case basis.
At Bedford we will call one designated member of family every day between 1.30pm and 4.30pm with a daily phone update. Those who miss a call back during this time and are concerned can contact the helpline on 01234 730500.
For the Luton & Dunstable, we are offering a dedicated Next of Kin helpline for family members who want to check up on their loved ones – please nominate one family member to call 01582 718884 between 8am and 6pm.
