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.

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 found doctor hughes very careing and approachable also I felt very confident in his care. it is a little scary when you need to have an operation but I felt I was in safe hands at all times.thank you for all your assistance. Annette bishop.
Very good and informative for surgery and effective and personable in clinic. One moan, or at least query......? I went in for day surgery for a laryngoscopy and biopsy. I was in for 7.30am and was last on the daylist, going to theatre at 4pm. The paperwork said afternoon patients would go in for 11.30. I live 10mins away, and could have been at least drinking during the morning. Why sit me in a bed unnecessarily with no information for most of the day?
My care was fantastic, my only comment/criticism would be that I was in the hospital very early for an operation that was only going to happen in the afternoon being as I was going to stay overnight. This meant I was not allowed to have a drink of water all day which was very uncomfortable.
Mr Hughes saw me very quickly after being referred. On meeting him for the first time I was impressed by the way he immediately put me at ease, obviously sensing I was very fearful. During the examination he told me what was happening and was gentle, thorough and professional throughout. Afterwards, I appreciated the calm manner in which he carefully and thoughtfully explained his diagnosis and the form that the required treatment would take. On the day of the operation he again explained fully what was going to happen and afterwards took time to reassure me and my husband that all had gone well. During the follow up appointment he said that they were going to keep a close eye on me in the coming months. The experience of being in his and his teams care has made me feel confident that I am in the best hands and in the best place for my condition. Mr Hughes is just how you would wish your consultant to be.
All the staff at the ENT department of the JR hospital were very kind and helpful. The treatment I received was very prompt, very successful and I am impressed with the way this department runs. It was the best experience I have had as an out patient at the JR. Nothing was rushed, all my questions were answered and Mr. Hughes could not have been more helpful in explaining all that needed explanation. I am impressed that I received the help I needed to sort out my problem so efficiently and kindly.
