  • Biography

    Having been inspired into ENT as a medical student and house officer at Guy's and St Thomas', Mr Harry Powell undertook basic surgical training in Bristol followed by specialist training at several prestigious London teaching hospitals.

    Two and a half years of otology, cochlear implant, neuro-otology and skull base surgery at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital cemented his subspecialist 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 in September 2016.
