Community Ear, Nose & Throat Service (ENT) 

UCLH is working in partnership with GPs in Barnet and Enfield to provide a community based ear, nose and throat (ENT) service. The Community ENT service provides specialist advice and treatment for a range of minor ENT conditions.

Our specialist ENT doctors and their multi-disciplinary team aim to diagnose the condition, arrange any investigations necessary and provide treatment if needed. The service is provided for patients who are living in Barnet and Enfield. The service is provided at a number of GP practices and Community Hospitals within these boroughs and the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital.
