Working with our Stakeholders

Some of our key stakeholders are listed below. The NIHR Clinical Research Network Ear, Nose and Throat National Specialty Group works closely with these organisations in integrating clinical research into NHS clinical service provision, in supporting the aims of GENERATE, and in driving priority setting that encourages research that will have the greatest impact on patients. 


ENT UK is the professional membership body that represents Ear, Nose and Throat and its related specialities. ENT UK represents over 1,300 medical practitioners including surgeons, trainees and audiologists.

Its objectives are "The advancement for the public benefit of education, training and research in the fields of otorhinolaryngology - head and neck surgery; the relief of patients suffering from diseases in the ear, nose and throat and related areas."

Everyone suffers from ear, nose and throat (ENT) conditions at some stage in their life; all young children have coughs and colds and may suffer from ear infections; when we get older we all lose some of our hearing and balance.

To ensure that patients benefit from the very best treatments in the field, it is important that research is conducted to improve our understanding of ENT conditions and how best to treat them. Doctors and researchers in ENT, Hearing and Balance have therefore worked closely with patients and families to develop an agenda that will guide research in the field for the next 10 years.
