Introduction

Prior to the year 1990, ENT service in Hong Kong is under a centralized team. At the time of opening of Tuen Mun hospital, there is a policy change and ENT service were split into a cluster based service. The NTWC ENT team starts its service since then. It has grown from a small team to its present size of one consultant, four associate consultants and seven resident specialists / trainee.

The department main role is to serve the population of the NTWC. It is also recognized as one of the training centres by the Hong Kong College of Otorhinolaryngologists. We have a good mentorship system and the trainee’s progress are closely monitored.

Scope of Services

The department is one of the earliest centres in Hong Kong that provide full attended PSG studies. The department has a fully equipped sleep laboratory in Tuen Mun Hospital. It is managed by two fully certified polysomnographer. The service is also provided to department of Paediatrics, Medicine and Geriatrics. The sleep laboratory has also coordinated the PPI sleep study with service providers. Patient can have an earlier sleep study done and an earlier attention to their sleep problem.

To enhance safety in operations, the department is equipped with navigation system for accurate anatomical localization during endoscopic sinus surgery.

Our Audiology Centre at ACC is providing a full range Audiology services which include various diagnostic assessments of the hearing and vestibular systems. In addition to serving adults and children, we are specifically responsible for universal hearing screening for all newborns in NTWC. Our rehabilitation services include hearing aid fitting and vestibular rehabilitation.

We are also one of the training centres for M.Sc. student audiologists of the University of Hong Kong.

In year 2011, we have started our Nurse clinic in Tuen Mun Hospital Ambulatory Care Centre. The initial project will be attending patients with ear wax problems. The APN will council, dispenses ear drops and performs ear syringing for the patients. Thereafter, patients will be arranged new case consultation with doctor together with hearing tests. This will speed up and smooth out the workflow of this group of patients. In future we will expand the scope of service to include other ENT pathologies.
