Mr Jonathan Hughes

Consultant Ear, Nose And Throat / Head And Neck / Thyroid Surgeon

BSC, MB, CHB, DO-HNS, PHD, FRCS

Jonathan Hughes graduated from University of Bristol Medical School in 2000. He received training in Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery and General Surgery prior to starting Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) training.

Mr Hughes higher surgical training included placements at recognised centres of excellence, including The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear, Imperial College, University College, and St Bartholomew’s Hospitals.

During his ENT training, Jonathan was awarded the Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship to undertake basic science research into viral gene therapy for the treatment of cancer. This research was conducted at the Barts Cancer Institute, London, and culminated in the award of PhD in 2013.

Following ENT training and research, he completed two Royal College of Surgeons of England accredited fellowships forming the basis for his super-specialist interests. The Imperial College Head and Neck fellowship focused on management of benign and malignant tumours of the head and neck. The North Thames Laryngology Fellowship was based at the National Centre for Airway Reconstruction at Charing Cross Hospital and focused on management of voice, airway and swallowing disorders.

In 2014, Jonathan completed a travelling fellowship to two international centres of excellence in the USA. Memorial Sloan-Kettering is the top cancer hospital in the USA and Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is a pioneering centre for the use of robotic technology in head and neck surgery. During this time he learnt the very latest minimally-invasive techniques used by world leaders in the field.

In 2015 he was appointed as a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat / Head and Neck / Thyroid Surgeon at University College London Hospitals and Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trusts.
