Ear, Nose and Throat
The ENT department at Bedford Hospital provides a comprehensive range of ENT services for patients presenting with Ear, Nose and Throat problems. With a department headed by four consultants each with a broad interest in ENT as well as sub-specialising in a particular element, the team also consists of Registrars, SHO’s, a MacMillan clinical nurse specialist and an experienced ENT nursing team all supported by visiting speech therapists, hearing therapists and dieticians. The work of the ENT department is further enhanced by an excellent audiology service located on the same floor.
ENT at Bedford also provides specialist clinics for Neck Lump assessments, Voice problems and Complex Nose problems as well as Cancer Follow-up clinics that are supported by a visiting Head & Neck surgeon from the Luton and Dunstable team of the hospital trust. The department also maintains a working link with the ENT department at Addenbrookes Hospital.
The four consultants are usually available to discuss problem cases over the telephone. There are usually three SHOs and two registrars, one of whom is always available on call. The duty SHO can be contacted via the hospital bleep system.

ENT outpatient appointments are now taking place in the bungalow located off of Calnwood Road, near the L&D social club.
The L&D has a team of highly qualified specialist Consultants dealing with all aspects of Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) from minor procedures, such as putting in grommets to complex head and neck surgery.
They are supported by specialist nurses and healthcare professionals, all focused on ensuring that our patients have the best possible treatment and experience.
The ENT team provides 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.
