By choosing our dedicated ENT Unit for your private healthcare, you can benefit from timely access to consultant appointments and diagnostic scans. We aim to offer treatment within two weeks of your diagnosis.

Safe hospital environment

Our team takes infection control very seriously. The ENT Unit upholds the highest standard of cleanliness, including a rigorous cleaning regime and attention to detail to prevent surgical infections. All equipment is thoroughly sanitised, and we perform regular screenings to protect you from COVID-19 and other infections during your time with us.

Post-operative care

You will always receive the highest quality treatment possible, as well as field-leading support and care following your treatment. Our wider team include specialist nurses who are able to offer support following surgery.

Our ENT services provide treatments for a range of problems in the ear, nose or throat. A doctor who specialises in this area is called a Consultant ENT Surgeon.

The symptoms below can all be signs of problems with your ear, nose or throat, so if you’re experiencing any of these you’ll want to arrange to see a doctor to have things checked out for your peace of mind:

  • Recurring inflamed sinuses (this is called sinusitis)
  • Hearing loss (this may have developed gradually or suddenly, in one or both ears)
  • Hoarseness: for 6 weeks or longer
  • A large goitre (enlarged thyroid gland)

At Sulis Hospital Bath, we regularly see and treat people just like you who may require:

  • Advice in treating a severe ear infection
  • Treatment for glue ear (Grommets insertion)
  • Help managing an overactive thyroid gland
  • Removal of the adenoid glands

Your consultations and treatment will be carried out by the specialist ENT team here at Sulis Hospital Bath. The members of this team are dedicated to getting you diagnosed, treated and recovered quickly and safely.

Here at Sulis Hospital Bath, we’ll make sure that you receive the best treatment possible for any problems in your ear, nose or throat.

If you ‘re experiencing a problem in your ear, nose or throat, we know it can often be a cause of worry for you. That’s why here at Sulis Hospital Bath we will:

  • diagnose and treat your problem fast: so you don’t have to worry any longer
  • help you with your recovery: so that you can get back to enjoying life as soon as possible.

When you book an appointment with us, you’ll be seen by one of our friendly consultants who specialise in problems of the ear, nose and throat. All of them are recognised leaders in their field and have many years of experience treating people with symptoms just like yours.

Your consultant will discuss your symptoms with you and your previous medical history to get a clear understanding of things.

Your consultant may require certain tests carried out to aid diagnosis. In the majority of cases, we are able to carry these tests out on the same day. However in some circumstances, and especially if the test requires specific preparation, we’ll need to arrange the test for another day. (Rest assured, we will always schedule it for the earliest possible date.)

From the very finest hearing (audiology) technology and diagnostic equipment to modern radiological solutions, we’re able to carry out a wide range of tests and scans fast.

Sometime, no additional tests will need to be required. (Any tests that are done will be thoroughly explained to you beforehand so that you know how the tests will be carried out and why they’re being done.)

We know that having to wait for test results can be frustrating, so you will be pleased to know that we believe in giving you a quick, accurate diagnosis following your consultation.

After your initial meeting, your consultant may decide that treatment for your problem can be provided by medication, fitting of hearing aids or some other fairly straightforward means.

If it’s determined that further investigation (for example a biopsy or surgical procedure) will be required, your consultant will talk you through the process thoroughly and answer any questions you may have.

You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your diagnosis and treatment options.

If you require treatment for a problem in your ear, nose or throat, we believe you’ll find no better place to come for expert help than Sulis Hospital Bath.

Whether you need adenoid removal surgery, treatment for sleep apnoea, removal of your tonsils, sinusitis treatment or help managing hearing loss, with our state-of-the-art equipment, luxurious facilities and a medical team that includes some of the top ENT consultants in the country you can be assured that you’ll be in expert and experienced hands the entire time you’re with us.
