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.

Although on the 19 July 2021 regulations around the use of facemasks / coverings and social distancing will change across the country, at Bedfordshire Hospitals all COVID infection prevention control measures currently in place will remain the same.
The Trust has decided it is currently not safe to lift all restrictions at our hospitals.
Everyone attending our sites will still be required to wear a facemask (unless medically exempt), adhere to social distancing and attend your appointments alone especially in our Emergency Departments and Outpatients (exclusions apply to our paediatric patients and those requiring carer support)
Visiting is now permitted on most of our adult inpatient wards in a controlled manner. Appointments need to be pre-booked with ward staff.
Full details about attending our hospitals and visiting is available here.
