Personal profile

Mr Bingham trained in Dundee, Bristol & Toronto. At the University of Toronto he worked in ear pathology and undertook the first training fellowship in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.  He has been a Consultant ENT Surgeon for 28 years in Glasgow. He co-founded the Scottish Sinus Surgery course and organised the Scottish national tonsil audit. Mr Bingham had a large paediatric audiology and ENT practice in South Glasgow and an adult practice focused on nasal and sinus disease.

He is the past chair of the Intercollegiate FRCS Examination in Otolaryngology and the immediate past president of ENT UK. His contributions as president of ENT UK concerned ENT departmental standards, consultant education, surgeon revalidation and how to keep a surgeon “emergency safe”.

On the subject of Ear, Nose and Throat disease he is the author of 5 textbooks and has contributed 6 chapters to other textbooks. He has written over 45 peer reviewed journal articles and currently reviews submitted articles for the Journal of Laryngology and Otology.

Mr Bingham consults on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Initial consultations are 30 minutes, review consultations are 15 minutes. If required, a nasal endoscopy, ear microsuction or pure tone audiogram may be undertaken at the first appointment.

You are welcome to bring a relative or friend to an initial consultation if you wish. Shortly after your consultation (usually within a week) you will receive a letter from Mr Bingham (copy to your GP) outlining the outcome of your consultation including information on your individual case management. In certain conditions, you may also receive a supportive information sheet.

Understanding you ENT problem in the context of your life, social circumstances and interests is an important aspect of the consultation.

At a child’s consultation Mr Bingham is likely to spend the first few minutes mostly speaking to the child.
