How your support is helping the ENT Clinic

Almost 11,000 children are seen each year by specialists in the ENT Clinic at the hospital, reviewing conditions involving the ear, nose, sinuses, throat and airways.

 

Nasopharyngoscopes are used to evaluate children with airway, voice, swallowing and breathing problems. Between five and ten procedures using these scopes are performed each day.

 

While the hospital has enough scopes to deal with planned outpatient appointments, emergencies do arise throughout the hospital, requiring these scopes to be diverted from outpatient clinics and slowing the flow of planned appointments. Families can often wait longer than expected.

As each scope requires 24 hours for cleaning following use, having a larger supply will eliminate the need to re-book patients for scope specific follow-up appointments.

 

Unique training opportunities for junior medical staff will also be possible.

 

Foundation donors can make a real and lasting difference to staff and families by funding additional Nasopharyngoscopes for use during unplanned procedures as the need arises. Reducing the amount of hospital visits will vastly improve a family’s experience of care.
