About: Rotherham Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

Waited months to see ENT. I have had Catarrh and nasal blockage for 2 years. It's very embarrassing socially as when I eat I must clear my nose for the next 30 minutes. The consultant saw me for only 4 minutes was very rushed. They placed a tube up my nose and said they could not see any problems, no you wouldn't as problems only arise when eating.

"Sorry we cannot help everyone you will need to learn to live with it." After 4 minutes they had given up. Did not advise where to go next. I asked if there was another specialist I can see they laughed. 2 minutes later I'm on way home in car.
