Although we shouldn’t be in this position, it may be useful for you to know that you can see an ENT consultant quickly and privately at the Spire Hospital in Elland if you are able to pay.
Mr Smelt is well known in the area, having worked for many years at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust. He has a variety of procedures he can undertake, including cleaning of middle ear and mastoid cavities.
One of my patients who has been unable to reach ENT via the GP has seen him last week after waiting only a few days for his next available appointment.
Let us all hope that the NHS gets back on its feet soon.
