Our services

Head and Neck


We provide a specialist service to both inpatients and outpatients with communication and swallowing difficulties as a result of head and neck cancer.

We work closely with other professionals such as Consultant ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dietitians and Clinical Nurse Specialists within the York Hospitals Head and Neck Cancer Multidisciplinary Team.  We also work closely with the corresponding hospital teams in Leeds and Hull where the radiotherapy and chemotherapy services are based.

We provide assessment, treatment, support, advice and information for patients, supporting their carers and families too and involving other professionals where appropriate.

We provide a Surgical Voice Restoration service for Laryngectomy patients and provide therapy and equipment for voice and respiratory rehabilitation. We have links with the local Head and Neck support group.

Patients are able to access the following specialist clinics:

  • Videofluoroscopy (Modified Barium Swallow) assessment (xray)
  • Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Clinics
  • Allied Health Professional Clinic (Clinical Specialist Nurse, Dietitian, and Speech and Language Therapist are present)
  • Drop-In Laryngectomy Clinic

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.  Information about our local services can be found on this website here.

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here.
