Our ENT department provide comprehensive and specialised care that manages a wide range of clinical conditions for people related not just specifically to the ear, nose and throat, but also other areas in the head and neck region. We provide a full range of out-patient and surgical ENT treatment, as well as a variety of sub-specialty clinics, often with other specialists present, to focus on more complex conditions.

Our team of clinicians specialise in a wide spectrum of diseases and disorders that affect the ENT system including snoring and sleep disorders, skin surgery, Meniere's and tinnitus to glue ear, nasal polyps, laryngitis, grommets, thyroid conditions, complex rhinology, head and neck surgery for people with head and neck cancer and much more. The department works closely with audiology and speech and language therapy to provide professional and friendly health care to adults and children of all ages.

The ENT service operates out of all three of our Hampshire Hospitals sites, at Basingstoke, Winchester and Andover. As well as providing community clinics at Alton.
