Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists in the Bournemouth area
Where can you seek help?
For medical ear problems that are not related to hearing loss or the dispense, fitting and programming of hearing devices we would always recommend you seek advice from your local NHS doctor surgery. Depending on the nature of the problem, your GP may then refer you to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist.
If you would like to obtain hearing aids from the NHS please speak to your GP or visit our NHS or Private hearing aid page for further information.

What we do
We would always refer you to your GP if you have problems with your ears or hearing that are:
i. not related to the deterioration of your hearing range through the natural ageing process
ii. not related to the deterioration of your hearing range through noise inducement

The only circumstances where a referral may not be sought is if your ear health issues are a known condition that you have previously sought attention from your GP or consultant for treatment.
