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
Everyone member of staff I encountered at the head and neck unit at UCH was kind and courteous and helpful and professional and made my diagnosis and surgery a very calm and pleasant experience. From the admin staff at reception who kept me informed about the schedule, to the porter who took me to surgery and gave me the correct measures of water, to the anaesthetist and surgeon who put my mind at ease about the procedure and the nurses who cared for me when I regained consciousness and the catering staff who provided very nice food and a cheery smile, I was absolutely delighted wth them all. Jonathan Hughes has a wonderful team and just like the others, was able to make time to answer all my questions in language I can understand. All hospitals are staffed by good people but there must be something special about the way UCH Head and Neck is managed because they are all on top form all the time and that can't be a coincidence. It's not as though I am an easy-going patient - I think other hospitals might classify me as a little "difficult", yet at UCH Head and Neck I never once felt uncomfortable about the information I was given or the way I was treated. It was perfect.
Dr Jonathan Hughes was a fantastic doctor, very thorough and thoughtful and I would be happy to recommend him. Very professionally and also caring and he did a great job with my minor operation and the follow up with him was very good.. I thought he was great and would be very happy to be under his care again. I really could not have been more pleased with the care I receieved from Dr Hughes and his team. Thank you.
Considerate, compassionate, clear -cut communication. Explained the necessary procedure step by step and achieved an excellent result ! Appreciative that I received a copy of the letter sent to the referring GP
I was referred to Mr Hughes when suffering from a foreign body sensation in my throat. After investigation it transpired I had tonsil stones which were removed by Mr Hughes with immediate relief. I attended his clinic again one month later for a checkup when all was seen to be well. I found Mr Hughes to be most pleasant and reassuring and very professional, and would have no hesitation in recommending him.
I was fortunate in that the voice therapist I was allotted Lise O'Leary, was very good at her job and recognised that I needed to see Mr Hughes, who was excellent. His manner and attitude gave me confidence to have the operation, which was very successful.
