James Rainsbury, Plymouth ENT specialist

I am an NHS and private consultant Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist based in Plymouth, Devon. I am fully qualified to deal with all areas of adult and children's ENT, but with special interests in: ear problems, hearing loss, tinnitus, balance problems & dizziness, Eustachian Tube Dysfunction (ETD) including surgery for ETD and children’s ENT problems.

Whether it's hearing difficulty or a hoarse voice, I will listen carefully and sympathetically to your symptoms and concerns, and work with you to tailor a management plan for you or your child, explained in a way you can understand. Coming to see a specialist can sometimes be a worrying prospect, so I will do my best to put everyone at ease; with experience as a doctor since 2001, full insurance and a License to Practice, you can be confident that you and your family will be in capable hands, with the knowledge and skills you can trust.

As my patient, whatever the problem, you can be assured of getting high quality, personalised care delivered in a friendly, professional manner.

I am fee-assured with most major health insurers, but also see self-funding patients who aren't insured. Details of fees for insured and self-funding patients can be found here.

My consulting rooms are at Nuffield Health Plymouth Hospital, where I see almost all adult and paediatric ENT patients. Occasionally, however, some private patients will be seen in the ENT department at Derriford, depending on their symptoms. If you are an adult and together we decide that an operation would be best for you, this usually will be done at the Nuffield, whereas children will be operated on in the Plym Children's Unit at Derriford.

Patient Feedback

Dear Mr Rainsbury, I’m so pleased I had the Balloon Eustachian Tuboplasty surgery. It’s really helped with my ETD and I can now equalise easily when I fly and dive. Looking forward to my scuba diving trip to Egypt!

I would just like to thank you for yesterday and say how well the appointment went. When I got home last night and discussed with [my daughter] how she felt it went, she was very happy and said she really liked you as you listened to her and she felt very much in control.
