Surgery Home
Otolaryngology is the specialty that deals with the diagnosis, evaluation and management of diseases of the ear, nose and throat including all aspects of cancer of the head and neck region. It involves dealing with patients of all ages and as a specialty Otolaryngology is responsible for surgical management of more paediatric patients than any other single surgical discipline.

The syllabus is linked with a number of related surgical specialties during the first two years of training (themed training). Thereafter training is conducted solely within the specialty unless interface modules are taken during the final years.

The department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery (ENT) at East Surrey Hospital NHS Trust provides elective and emergency services for the county of East Surrey and West Sussex and elective day surgery at Crawley Hospital. We have additional clinics at Horsham and Caterham. We run specialist clinics in Head & Neck surgery, rhinology and Dizzy clinics. Weekly teaching sessions are run every Friday morning in the postgraduate education centre.

There are 5 consultants, 1 associate specialist, 4 Specialty doctors (middle grade) and 1 core trainee, 2 GP trainees and 3 trust grade doctors. Emergency work is based at East Surrey Hospital in A&E and emergency clinics are run at the Surgical Assessment Unit (SAU). ENT patients are admitted to Brook ward (adults) and Outwood ward (children).
