Patient information

Before your appointment

You are welcome to bring a relative, close friend or carer with you to your appointment, and you are welcome to ask for a chaperone. Please bring a list of any medication you are currently taking or have taken in the past, as well as details of any past treatments or therapies you have had for your condition.

During your appointment

Please note that we are a teaching hospital, so medical students may be present for some appointments. If you do not wish to have them in the room please let the nurse or doctor know and the students will be asked to step outside.

If this is your first appointment to our one-stop clinic, please expect your visit to take up to four hours. During your appointment, you will have a clinical assessment and an ear, nose and throat test. Your doctor or nurse may also help you try some treatment options.

After your appointment

After your appointment, a clinical report and a summary of all test results will included in a letter that will be sent to your GP and to your referring consultant. You will also receive a copy of this letter, and you will be contacted about any follow-up appointments that may be required.
