The ENT department provides diagnosis and treatment for
adult and paediatric patients with ear, nose, and throat
conditions across the Durham and Darlington region.
We work across six sites across the region, offering care closer
to home. Outpatient services are provided at Darlington Memorial
Hospital, Bishop Auckland Hospital, University Hospital
of North Durham, Shotley Bridge Community
Hospital, Sedgefield Community
Hospital and Chester-le-Street
We also work alongside the Audiology department which provides services
at all these sites.
Inpatient care for both emergency patients and those on the
waiting list is provided at Darlington Memorial
Hospital, and Day Surgery for both adult and children is also
provided at University Hospital
of North Durham.
'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient
ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
