Ear, nose and throat (ENT)

We diagnose and treat adults and children with acute and chronic (recurrent or long-lasting) ear, nose and throat conditions. This includes:

  • General ear, nose and throat treatment
  • Paediatric (children’s) ear nose and throat treatment
  • Balance and dizziness
  • Ear problems
  • Facial plastic and skin lesions
  • Hospital hearing tests and aids and treatment
  • Neck lumps and thyroid
  • Nose and sinus problems
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Salivary gland problems
  • Throat (including voice and swallowing)
  • Tinnitus

At Musgrove Park Hospital, we help care for patients while they are staying in hospital (inpatient), as well as day case patients, routine outpatient appointments and emergencies. If you are seen at Yeovil Hospital and need complex surgery or to be admitted to hospital, you may have your treatment at Musgrove Park Hospital or Dorset County Hospital.

At Yeovil Hospital, we provide day surgery for ear nose and throat treatment, as well as outpatient clinics. You may also be invited to outpatient clinics in Chard, Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Minehead, and for patients more local to these areas – Blandford, Weymouth and Bridport.

We can assess head and neck lumps at both hospitals. Patients diagnosed at Yeovil Hospital are likely to receive their treatment at Musgrove Park Hospital, or less frequently Dorset County Hospital.
