Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Gavin Watters at Spire include:
I trained in ENT surgery in Oxford, London and Portsmouth. I also received specialist training in Head and Neck Oncology while Senior Registrar at the Royal Marsden hospital. I spent a year as ENT Fellow at the Royal Darwin Hospital in Australia, where I gained considerable experience from managing severe and unusual pathology in the Aboriginal population, particularly chronic middle ear disease.
I was appointed as a consultant at Southend Hospital in 1999 and I am currently head of department. I was Head and Neck lead clinician for the South Essex Cancer Network from 2000-08. I was clinical lead for ENT services in Essex from 2008-2012.
I have performed over 300 major ear/mastoid operations
In addition to my clinical responsibilities in Southend I am Royal College of Surgeons regional specialty advisor and sit on the council of the Laryngology and Rhinology section of the Royal society of medicine.
I provide a comprehensive service in all aspects of paediatric and adult ENT surgery. I am a member of both the Thyroid and Skin cancer multidisciplinary teams for Essex. I also have a particular interest in chronic middle ear disease and am currently one of the few ENT surgeons in Essex undertaking major ear surgery.
I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP's letter of referral.

I have an interest in art, including art history. Through this I enjoy travel and have attempted to learn Italian. I have two daughters, so when family commitments allow, I enjoy playing golf and watching football. As a life-long Aberdeen supporter I try to get to Pittodrie at least once a year, but I am able to go to Roots Hall more regularly. I also enjoy music and play the guitar for relaxation.Back to top
