  1. Hi James,

    It would be good to catch up regarding the ENT input into this pathway as there are some aspects of the assessment which are missing such as the assessment of hearing and common peripheral causes such as Ménière’s disease.

    • Jafri,

      Sorry for the delay in response. Thanks for your interest. I know the author of the guideline, Dan Pixley, did try very hard to get ENT input at the time of writing the guideline, but without much success. I have spoken to him and I know he is still keen for this to happen. He is currently on leave to do his fellowship exams. He will return in October. I will forward your details to him, and I am sure he will be in touch when he can.

      Regards
