Our multidisciplinary team

Our shared team vision is to have a patient-focused centre of excellence where the most renowned experts in head and neck conditions can work together. Established almost 20 years ago at The Harley Street Clinic, our head and neck consultants bring together in our weekly multidisciplinary team meeting, some of the UK’s most highly skilled clinicians. Surgeons, oncologists, anaesthetists, radiotherapists and pathologists collaborate closely to create a care plan that is tailored to each patient’s specific condition and needs. 

Conditions we treat

We specialise in every aspect of head and neck disease and disorders. Every part of the head and neck is a branch of medicine in itself to achieve the depth of understanding and experience to treat these conditions successfully, our team sub specialise in conditions and cancers affecting the mouth, larynx, nose, sinuses, thyroid glands and skin.

Diagnostics with Professor Francis Vaz, Consultant ENT & Head & Neck Surgeon

Ultrasound gives us the ability to pinpoint issues and damage in the head and neck. As a result, our leading surgeons - like Professor Francis Vaz, Consultant ENT & Head & Neck Surgeon at The Harley Street Clinic - can target treatment in less invasive ways.

Second opinion

There are many reasons why patients could be considering a second opinion, such as they are not confident that the correct diagnosis has been made or their condition has returned following treatment. It's best to get a second opinion soon and it’s never too late to seek one – even if you’ve already started treatment.

One-Stop Rapid Diagnosis

Each Friday, we provide a one-stop rapid diagnosis clinic at our 16 Devonshire Street Outpatient centre. Run by our team of consultant radiologists and pathologists, cell and tissue samples can be taken, analysed and discussed immediately. Pathologists can determine on the spot whether samples are adequate or more tests are required to avoid patients coming in for repeat visits. Cytopathology is fundamental to the diagnosis of head and neck lumps, including enlarged lymph nodes, thyroid nodules and lumps in the salivary glands. Consultants and surgeons can then swiftly determine the next stage of tests or treatment – often on the same day. For unequivocally benign results, patients can receive that reassurance immediately.

Our patients: Robert's story

The use of ultrasound in our diagnostic practice is assisting us in administering much less invasive treatment to our patients - like Robert, who encountered a persistent sore throat on holiday that revealed his diagnosis of tongue cancer. He shares his experience as a patient with us at The Head and Neck Centre at The Harley Street Clinic.

Outstanding facilities, 24/7 care

Our Head and Neck Centre is located within The Harley Street Clinic in London’s famous medical district, with many of our patients travelling to receive treatment with us. We fully understand that staying in hospital can be an anxious time which is why we surround our patients with an experienced team to support them throughout their recovery.

From private en-suite bedrooms to Level 3 Intensive Care Units, from the very latest diagnostic technology to our outstanding levels of safety critical in the provision of complex care, we take a 24/7 multi model approach to each patient’s recovery. Patients are fully supported by teams with deep clinical knowledge combined with compassion and the time to dedicate to each patient.
