Harry Powell ENT Surgeon




Consultant, London, UK





Mr Harry Powell was a medical student in London at the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' (1997-2003). He undertook basic surgical training in Bristol, followed by ENT specialist training at several prestigious London teaching hospitals:

  • The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear
  • Great Ormond Street
  • The Royal Marsden

He gained a breadth of experience treating adults and children with all ENT conditions.

Two and a half years of otology, cochlear implants, neuro-otology and skull base surgery at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital cemented his sub-specialist interests.

He was awarded the Graham Fraser Memorial Fellowship and two Royal College of Surgeons grants for advanced surgical training in ear surgery and auditory implantation in Sydney, Australia where he developed an interest in endoscopic ear surgery.

Harry returned to Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust as the otology and auditory implant fellow and was subsequently appointed as a Consultant there in September 2016.
