    From my first outpatient appointment, through my investigations, diagnosis, admission to hospital, subsequent surgery and follow-up care all were managed in a kind, compassionate way. Everything was explained clearly, with timelines. I felt I had time to absorb the information being given to me and to ask as many questions as I needed to. I feel very safe, secure and reassured through the entire process. Mr Hughes is a very skilled surgeon with a caring manner and I would not hesitate to recommend him and feel lucky to have been under his care.

    I cannot recommend Mr Jonathan Hughes enough, It was easy to make an appointment with him at his clinic, having suffered a severe throat problem for a good part of 8 months . My consultation with Mr Hughes completely put my mind at rest. After an initial conversation about my problem I was having an endoscopy down my throat within no time. He made me feel completely at ease. Plus, it was something I had been waiting to have done for months at my local hospital. I was completely happy with his diagnosis and his utmost professionalism. He sorted me out within one hour! Following on from his advice my throat has made a good recovery in a matter of weeks. I cannot thank him enough. I was able to return back to work in no time. Thank you Mr Hughes.

    I was delighted with my consultation with Mr Hughes. I had been extremely worried about a lesion in my throat and after carrying out a thorough examination he was able to reassure me that there was no cause for concern. His manner was immensely confidence-inspiring and I consider myself lucky to have obtained an appointment with him.

    I first saw Jonathan Hughes in February and have continued to be under his care during these difficult lockdown times. I have now had two sets of surgery carried out by him and have nothing but praise for his professional care and kindness throughout. He has been patient to listen to my concerns and has explained things thoroughly and has always been easy to contact, should the necessity arise. I feel total confidence under his guidance and would be extremely happy to recommend him to others.
