Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat / Head and Neck / Thyroid Surgeon Jonathan Hughes graduated from the 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 in London. His 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 the 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. Following a Consultant appointment at Oxford University Hospitals, he was appointed as a Consultant ENT / Head and Neck Surgeon at University College London Hospitals and Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trusts in 2015. https://uk.linkedin.com/in/jonathanhughesentsurgeon
I am an overseas patient who travels twice a year, to the UK to be followed up by Dr.Hughes, following a resection of my trachea after the removal of a malignant tumour and followed by RT at Charing Cross Hospital. He has always given me the time that I needed and answered any questions that I brought with me. Even in the months between follow-ups, if I had any questions or doubts or felt any pain, even pain that was not directly related to the trachea, Dr Hughes has always answered my emails immediately and put my mind at rest or gave me a suggestion on what i ought to do. This I appreciate immensly! What is great about Dr Hughes, I feel, is that he does not take any risks and if there is the slightest doubt about anything he will investigate further.
Great care, answered my questions and I was happy with the care I received. The reason for the lesser score on trust, is due to the condition I have, it's rare and I don't think there is a lot known about it, so I feel most procedures are a bit of a gamble as to the results I achieve.
