Main Outpatient Department, Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
ENT (Ear, nose and throat) is a specialty that looks after people with conditions affecting ears, throat, nose, sinuses and cares for people who may have head and neck cancer. Care is provided by a team of Consultants supported by a Specialty Grade Doctor and nursing staff. We also care for people who require emergency treatment related to their ears, nose or throat.
Care is delivered in outpatient settings, day care units and inpatient wards with Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
Consultants in Forth Valley perform all common procedures in the management of these conditions with the exception of young children who require infrequently performed operations that are best done in children’s hospital. Head and neck cancer services are delivered by a team of specialists including speech therapists, physiotherapists and dieticians. The care is shared with NHS Lanarkshire and the Beatson Oncology Centre in Glasgow.
