Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Unit

The Edith Cavell Hospital's purpose-built ENT Unit consists of Ward 12 with the adjacent Outpatients and Audiology Departments providing an interlinking multidisciplinary service.

Adult patients with an extensive range of emergency and routine ENT conditions are cared for on Ward 12, paediatric patients are cared for on Amazon, our children's ward at Peterborough District Hospital.  A range of surgical procedures are performed including mastoid and middle ear surgery, nasal / sinus surgery, major and minor head and neck surgery including operations on the larynx, pharynx, thyroid, parathyroid and salivary glands.

Combining technology with expertise outpatient and specialist clinics offer prompt effective diagnosis and treatment at a time to suit patients and clinical need.  Patients with general ear, nose and throat diseases, voice disorders, neck lumps, cancers of the head and neck, balance and hearing disorders, thyroid and nasal disease are cared for.  Innovative nurse led services increase patients choice and access to treatment including rapid access tonsillectomy, aural care and allergy clinics.
