Paul Chatrath completed his preclinical medical degree at the University of Cambridge and subsequent clinical training at The Royal London Hospital Medical College, London, obtaining his MBBS degree with distinctions in three subjects and Proxime Accessit to the University of London Gold Medal.
He undertook basic surgical training in Cambridge and higher surgical training in Otolaryngology (ENT Surgery) in North London, culminating in passing the final FRCS (ORL-HNS) Intercollegiate examination and the award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in ENT.
During his training, Paul undertook a period of formal research which investigated the role of surface brushings of the larynx in discriminating between cancerous areas and benign (harmless) lesions. This led to the award of an MD higher research degree with the University Of London.
Paul now holds a substantive NHS post as Consultant ENT Surgeon/Rhinologist at Charing Cross Hospital (Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust), London. He has also been appointed as Honorary Senior Lecturer, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford (July 2012).
Partners of Essex Anaesthetic Practice (PEAP)
Formed in 2005, PEAP is co-owned and run by a group of experienced consultant anaesthetists, all of whom hold substantive NHS appointments and work in the private sector. They provide a comprehensive range of anaesthetic services to the ENT clinic. They have practising rights at all of the private facilities offered by this clinic and by virtue of their flexibility and availability, cover is almost always provided to enable your surgery to take place at a time and location that is convenient for you.
Sue, PA & Secretary
Sue has been the private secretary and PA to Paul Chatrath for nearly 8 years. She carries out all of the administration duties including typing of clinic letters, billing, organisation of theatre lists and liaising with private hospitals and insurance companies regarding authorisation queries. She is available by email during the day and evening including weekends, and also by telephone late afternoon and evenings (and also during the day for urgent queries). She has a good knowledge of most ENT conditions and procedures and is able to offer some practical information, advice and reassurance to patients both before and after surgery
Nisha Patel, Speech & Language Therapist
Nisha is one of our most experienced and sought after speech therapists. Working both for the NHS (at Queen’s Hospital) and privately, she offers a high quality speech therapy service for patients with a weak or hoarse voice, both in children and adults. As several sessions may need to be scheduled depending on the condition in question, she is extremely flexible in terms of where the consultations can take place, out of hours if necessary and arranged to fit in with your own commitments.
