The ENT Directorate has built a national and international reputation in clinical studies. This has led to important benefits in the management of these long-term conditions.

The department conducts a range of applied research involving development, refining and evaluation of many diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for chronic neurotological conditions. It also collaborates with industrial partners to undertake multicentre phase 2 and phase 3 studies.

The research team is based at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and with an average of 8 studies authorised (some of which are NIHR Portfolio adopted) and several others in set-up. There is active collaboration with other directorates and the two universities in multidisciplinary research.

The research team actively designs and sets up trials, recruit patients onto ongoing research and supports researchers and patients throughout the period of the project. There is an active PPI group that helps shape research topics in collaboration with the research team.

Current research covers the broad areas of:

  • Complex hearing loss
  • Balance
  • Tinnitus
  • Implantation otology
