Ear, Nose and Throat

Bedford Hospital

The ear, nose and throat department aims to provide a comprehensive service for all ENT problems except otoneurology, where we have a link with the department at Addenbrookes and head and neck cancer where patients are treated at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.

The three consultants have a broad interest and are usually available to discuss problem cases over the telephone. There are three SHOs, a staff surgeon and a registrar, one of whom is always available on call. The duty SHO can be contacted via the hospital bleep system.
