ENT (Ear Nose and Throat Surgery)

Service Description

This Department of Paediatric Otolaryngology (ENT) provides care for children referred for tertiary and local care.

Referrals for children with complicated ENT problems or complex medical histories are usually from other ENT units around the North West. For secondary care, we provide ENT services for Salford and North Manchester.

The department has Paediatric ENT Consultants, a clinical fellow, specialist registrars and one research fellow.

The department has an out-patient clinic and theatre sessions every working day.

The ENT unit has expertise in paediatric airway endoscopy, laryngeal reconstruction, prostheses for congenital ear atresia, and correction of choanal atresia and other congenital abnormalities.
