Ear, Nose and Throat
The community ENT service for the NHS was started by Dr Unwin 17 years ago and now has grown into a team of several doctors and support staff. The service accepts GP referrals from the West Kent CCG, Dartford and Gravesham CCG, Medway CCG and Swale CCG. The doctors will see all ear, nose and throat conditions with the exception of children under 2 years and patients with a suspected cancer diagnosis.
The service also works in close collaboration with the Head and Neck departments of both Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS trust and Medway NHS Foundation trust to reduce their outpatient waiting times. There is an allied aural care (ear microsuction) clinic, for all CCG patients and a service for dispensing new hearing aids for West Kent patients. The service works closely with HI Kent, which run clinics from several sites including the Borough Green Medical Practice, Rochester Healthy Living Centre and Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital.
The service has been well received by both local doctors and patients alike, for many years now.
