Birmingham Ear Clinic

Welcome to the website for The Birmingham Ear Clinic

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

The Birmingham Ear Clinic is not able to see patients face-to-face at the moment, but we are still able to help you 'remotely' with a telephone consultation.

Please do get in touch with us if you have any concerns about your ears, hearing or balance and would like to arrange a telephone consultation. Please also contact us if you are an existing patient and have any problems or queries. We're here to help you as much as we can.

Most of the private medical insurance companies are willing to allow their policyholders to have telephone or video consultations so that they can access medical help during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are medically insured and would like to arrange a remote consultation with us, it would be sensible to contact your insurer first.

If you aren't insured and would like to fund your telephone consultation yourself, please contact us directly. You don't need a letter of referral from your doctor.

We do need to let you know that unless, following your telephone consultation, we consider that your problem may be a serious one, it will not be possible for us to arrange for you to have a scan, a hearing test or a blood test until the current rules are relaxed. However, if you have already had tests performed elsewhere before your consultation with us, my secretary will ask you for the details so that she may obtain these in advance.

While we are not able to see you face-to-face, please do be reassured that we are here and you can contact us. Please do call or E-mail Sue Wilcox, our Practice Manager, and we will do our very best to help you.

Sue is available Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 16.30 hrs

Patients may be referred to our Clinic at the request of their own general practitioners. We also receive many 'tertiary' referrals of patients from other ENT surgeons, surgeons from elsewhere in the UK and from overseas, who are seeking a specialist opinion and advice for their own patients from a renowned expert in the field.

Please see our Clinic Locations page for details of how to arrange an appointment with one of our consultants at The Birmingham Ear Clinic.
