ENT and Airway

The School has several hospitals where general ENT experience (including paediatrics) can be gained, and two specialised units.


The Royal National Ear Nose and Throat Hospital (RNTNE) is a specialist hospital. UCLH also has specialised Head-and-Neck services.

UCLH recently became the designated specialist centre for the treatment of head and neck cancer for the people of north and east London and west Essex and now one of the largest head and neck centres in England. Care is delivered by a varied, integrated and comprehensive multi-disciplinary team bringing together clinicians from many specialities including, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT), Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Head and Neck Oncology services, as well as specialist nursing, anaesthetic and rehabilitation services.
