Referrals:GP referral via Choose and Book.
We accept referrals from GPs for patients with appropriate ENT
conditions (as listed). This enables patients to receive care near
their home. Waiting times are short.
The clinic is staffed by a GPSI, a nurse, an Audiologist, a
secretary and a Manager/Head of Service.
Patients are sent a letter confirming the appointment date and
enclosing instructions on how to get to the clinic including the
main bus routes to the clinic. After each assessment the
patient is sent a letter detailing information about the condition,
the assessment and treatment and the need for any review. This is
copied to the GP and any other professional involved in the
patient's care. A full clinic record is held at Moss Side Health
Each patient in the clinic has a full history taken and recorded
and patient's ears and/or nose are examined. The GPSI may also
remove problematical wax or infection from the ears, or examine the
patient's nose during the appointment.
Blood samples and swabs are also taken and X-rays arranged if
Hearing tests are available as part of the Friday morning clinic if
indicated during the assessment.
