Birmingham Ear ClinicTertiary referrals

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.

We are very happy to accept tertiary referrals and usually allow a longer, 45-minute consultation for such cases.

If you are being referred to Mr Irving or Mr Monksfield by another ENT consultant elsewhere within the UK, it will be particularly important for you to discuss the referral with your private medical insurers and to ascertain that they will cover in full the costs of your consultation and any diagnostic procedures carried out at that visit. If you have had any scans or X-rays with your original ENT surgeon, it will be necessary for you to bring these with you to the consultation.
