Treatment is offered for patients with hearing loss and tinnitus.


Patients with nose bleeds may require cauterisation. Nasal airway obstruction can be due to a deformity of the mid line septum, polyps or inflammation of the lining of the nose possibly due to allergy; all of which can be treated by medication or in some cases surgery. Recurrent or persistent sinus symptoms may need scanning and again surgical treatment is required in the minority of cases.


Patients presenting with voice problems or swallowing issues will require endoscopic examination of the throat which can be carried out in the outpatients department but some cases will require examination under anaesthetic and biopsies.
