The ENT Department service approximately 850,000 patients in East Kent. It has a full array of subspecialties including head and neck oncology, otology, rhinology. There are daily operating lists and clinics at the William Harvey Hospital and Kent and Canterbury as well as Margate.
The department has adopted an attending consultant model of service and education. This has led to what we believe to be an excellent educational opportunity as there is daily extensive junior to consultant interaction including bedside and connect teaching.
Presently at higher surgical training level we have three higher specialty trainees and one Royal College of Surgeons-appointed international fellow, one HELaSE appointed Core trainee, two GPSTs and two F2 trainees. The department has eight consultant surgeons comprising of head and neck and otology into rhinology, two associates and two associate specialists.
We have had consistently high quality feedback from trainees and external visits.
Our aim is to provide relevant Consultant-led education to our trainees and give them every opportunity to expand their experience.
