Ear, nose and throat | East and North Herts NHS Trust

Ear, nose and throat

Our ear, nose and throat (ENT) team work closely with local GPs to provide a comprehensive range of emergency and non-emergency services for both children and adults.

Inpatient and outpatient services are provided from the Lister, whilst the New QEII and Hertford County hospitals provide only an outpatient service. All operations, including all children’s day case procedures, take place at the Lister.

There is an on-call service at the Lister available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergency GP referrals. Referral is made to the ENT bleep holder who will decide whether the patient needs urgent review or can be booked into the emergency clinic that runs from Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 12.30pm. The bleep holder should be able to book an appointment in the ENT clinic in real time. For less severe cases, our specialist nurse can provide you with expert help on allergies, ear care and assessing the need for, and arranging of, tonsil surgery.
