Department of Otolaryngology

The unit provides a full range of clinical otolaryngology services to the population of Tayside (City of Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Kinross) and North-east Fife. The catchment area encompasses approximately 751,000 people. The services are based at Ninewells Hospital & Medical School and includes 36 in-patient beds, twin operating theatres, out-patient clinics and audiology facilities on the Ninewells site. In-patient facilities are based in Ward 26 in the West Block of the hospital, with theatres next door.

The department also offers additional out-patients clinics in Perth Royal Infirmary, Stracathro Hospital and St. Andrews Community Hospital. All clinics are fully equipped with the necessary endoscopes, microscopes and audiology services to provide a full ENT service.
