Have your say

Staff working in the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Department at Leeds General Infirmary have been moved to a new facility.

The department, which sees around 25,000 patients every year, has moved up a floor to the Brotherton Wing and is now located at the newly-refurbished department on the C-floor.

Senior sister Vanda Scorgie said: “We feel extremely lucky to have such a bright, modern environment which is much bigger, giving us more flexibility including extra treatment rooms.

“We now have much more comfortable waiting areas, a new quiet room, a children’s play area, dedicated adult and children’s audiology rooms and space for speech and language therapy too.”

Artwork has also been donated by Leeds museums.

Nicky Rowe, business manager for the ENT department, said: “Everything was extremely well planned and went like clockwork so we avoided disrupting patient care.”

People around the world are marking Earth Hour this evening. People in Britain are expected to join in at 8.30pm... and then they will switch their clocks forward tonight as British Summer Time begins.

Get ready to turn your clocks forward... but before that expect things to get much darker
